Geeta Singh-Knight, the embattled former CEO of the beleaguered insurance and investment giant Clico, confirmed to this newspaper that she is no longer a member of the Board of Directors of the Berbice Bridge Company Inc.
Speaking to Stabroek News on Thursday,
Singh-Knight said she was no longer with the board of the bridge. However, she refused to divulge the reason for her not being on the board.
According to sources, two persons from the NIS have been appointed to the board following the departure of Singh-Knight. One of these persons is Chartered Accountant Maurice Solomon, a member of the NIS Board.
Singh-Knight was removed from the helm of the troubled company Clico to allow for it to be placed under judicial management. She had served on the Board of the Berbice Bridge by virtue of Clico investing in the bridge. The NIS has also made investments in the Berbice Bridge to the tune of over $80 million.
