Ms. Sheena Glasgow has been appointed as acting postmaster general for the Cayman Islands Government. Equipped with her bachelor's degree in mass communication and business management from Anderson University, Indiana, Ms. Glasgow returned home to begin a career in government in 1993. She made her first stop at Radio Cayman where she signed on as news editor.
In 1997 she moved on, becoming the assistant secretary for the Ministry of Planning, Communications, Works and Information Technology (PCW&IT). Shortly after, she was promoted to administrative officer I. "While in the ministry I was responsible for numerous subjects including Postal Services. I attended most of the Caribbean Postal Union's annual conferences and also went to the 22nd Congress of the Universal Postal Union in Beijing, China in 1999," notes Ms. Glasgow.
Minister responsible for Postal Services, Hon. Linford Pierson, OBE, JP, is pleased that Ms. Glasgow will continue to work with his ministry. "Although she isn't with us in the Glass House any longer she has a very significant link to our ministry as the acting head of one of its departments," he says. "I've enjoyed working with her in the past and look forward to working with her in the future. I have no doubt that she will pick up where the former Postmaster General, Mona Banks-Jackson, left off and that she will enable the department to succeed in its future endeavours."
Regarding her new position, Ms. Glasgow comments, "The business of every post office happens on local and international levels. Managing those local operations and international partnerships against a background of ever-increasing competition from the private sector is one of the main challenges of any postmaster general. However, having dealt with postal matters at the ministerial level before, I also know that the post is a very interesting business with lots of development potential. I'm looking forward to the challenges and counting on the staff to rise to meet them with renewed energy." She adds that she is grateful for the support of the ministry staff and that their confidence means a lot.
