Share post:

Barbados Consul General in New York Mackie Holder is taking up a new position as early as next month.

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley announced Sunday night that he will be heading to London to be the Deputy High Commissioner there.

The news of the change came towards the end of a town hall meeting held at St Francis College Auditorium in Brooklyn, New York.

Mottley thanked Holder for his work in New York noting that at least three of his years there were taken up with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I look forward to you continuing to represent Barbados,” she said to those who attended the meeting which was hosted by the Consulate General of Barbados at New York.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Kerrie Symmonds, who also attended the meeting, also commended Holder for his contributions in helping to connect communities in that jurisdiction, adding he was looking forward to him building more bridges for a better Barbados going forward. (CM)
