PRESS RELEASE – The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) announces the appointment of Keigan Cox as the organisation’s general manager/chief executive officer effective June 16, 2014.

Cox is an accomplished executive with experience in management, finance, business development, corporate governance and project management. He brings both regional and international business experience that will serve SLASPA well as the organisation continues on its developmental path.

Cox most recently served as head of business development, Digicel OECS and currently serves as a director on the Board of Directors for the Eastern Caribbean Financial Holding Company Limited as well as the National Insurance Corporation (NIC).

Cox is the holder of a bachelor of economics degree and a masters degree in business administration (MBA), an accredited director and member of the ICSA and is currently completing a masters in law (LLM).

Under Cox’s leadership SLASPA will continue its focus on developing the island’s ports of entry, increasing both maritime and aviation throughput while ensuring safety and security, expanding the ports’ business and building community partnerships.

A key area of concentration going forward will be future proofing, which will involve concentrating on ensuring that the organisation continues to use the latest technology to gain operational efficiencies and continue best management practices to meet international standards.

“I am excited to be a part of the SLASPA team and look forward to working with the Port Council, management team, staff and the wider airport and seaport stakeholders. There are tremendous opportunities which as a team, I believe that we can take full advantage of and realise great benefit to not only SLASPA but to the government and people of Saint Lucia,” said Cox.

This week, Cox plans to conduct a series of meetings with local airport and seaport stakeholders island-wide.

  1. The new Cliche (Jobs for the boys) and the upgrade (... and girls) is now a trite comment by seemingly disgruntled party supporters.

    1. Was there not a vacancy for the position of GM/CEO at slaspa? I guess it had to remain vacant to please the masses

    2. Hasn't career changes always been at the discretion of the individual being affected? Maybe not when you move to slaspa because that's the "forbidden kingdom"

    3. When shall we begin to "judge" an individual on their performance? So many of us seem to know in advance who will fail. Bravo to the clairvoyants in our midsts - they must be wreaking with great fortune now

  2. It Is Very Evident That Its Jobs For The boys. Cause how can someone without an engineering background run a port authority.

    • Because,to head a modern port authority, you should have management and leadership skills more than engineering skills. If you have a good chief engineer in your port authority you do not necessarily need an engineer to head the management team.

      • ....in any authority. that's why the project managers make shitloads when they barely know how to operate the machinery. they know enough to effectively direct the people who actually do the work.

        @sluny - do you really think Steve Ballmer knew jack shit about Windows Server 2012 during his tenure at Microsoft? Though as shit as they say he was he made millions with that company.....

    • Do you know of any females with such decorated credentials who were willing and showed interest in stepping up to the plate?

      Please highlight my dear user. It would be interesting to know what female power exists to match such a leader.

      Don't know him personally, just going by his experience; seems he's carried some weight. Hope he does a good job and inspires young people to push to educate themselves in order to take over from the old expired suits making a mess out of our island.
