Congratulations to Albert Gordon

Dear Editor,

I write this letter to congratulate Mr. Albert Gordon on his appointment as the Chief Executive Officer  of the Guyana Power and Light Inc. (GPL), to welcome him to Guyana and  wish him every success in this new endeavor.

Albert, we last saw each other when we travelled out  of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands on the same flight after spending days at a very successful conference of the  Organisation of Caribbean Regulators (OOCUR) at which you played a major part and from which  you departed holding a major office. Since then, it seems, you  have moved from strength  to strength.

Like me, you have experience at both the utility level and that  of a regulator having  served the Jamaica Public Service (JPS) – Jamaica’s power utility – and the Organization of Utility Regulators (OUR) in Jamaica. I am sure that the merging  of that experience will serve you well in a self-regulating company like GPL, and am looking forward to your ending the constant blackout and unstable and unreliable electricity we suffer at the earliest possible time.

Welcome again and best wishes for your success.

Lancelot McCaskey
