Former Managing Director of St. Lucia Air and Seaports Authority (SLASPA) Vincent Hippolyte is the new head of WASCO.
He has replaced John Joseph.
Dr James Fletcher, Minister for the Public Service, Sustainable Development, Science and Technology, said Hippolyte’s appointment is part of the evolution of WASCO.
Work will continue to remedy its debt situation, the minister said.
Among other accomplishments, Hippolyte is credited with assisting in developing the Dominica Seaports Authority, which merged with the Department of Civil Aviation at the recommendation of the IMF.
He has served as a director on the executive board of the Organisation of American States Committee on Ports; as Chief Executive Officer of the Anguilla Air and Seaports Authority; as chairman of the St Lucia Free Zone Management Authority, and the Antigua-based Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority. Hippolyte started at SLASPA as an economist.
