The outgoing Chairman of Massy Guyana was last night conferred with an award by the Private Sector Commission (PSC) for his company’s longstanding service to the Commission over the last two decades.
At a ceremony held at Massy’s Staff Facilities that featured attendance from the PSC’s corporate members, Deo Persaud, Massy Guyana’s Chair-man, was given an award for the company’s dedication to the Commission over the last 23 years.
Persaud told the gathering that when the Commission was in its infant stage, Massy was at the forefront and even though other major companies were major contributors, his company’s support never waned.
He stated that the issues that played out in 1997 and the role the private sector played, reinforced his view about the value of the Commission and there was never any question about continuing as a member.
Persaud also announced that as of today he would no longer be the chairman since his retirement leave officially ended yesterday and he would be taking up a new role in the company as a consultant for the next year.
As a result, David Alphonso, who is in charge of distribution in Trinidad and Tobago, will be taking up the helm at Massy Guyana and the position of Country Manager will no longer exist.
After collecting the award, Persaud spoke about his tenure at the company and said he had no regrets about the journey.
