NEW APPOINTMENTS: Fraser-Pryce and Parchment named Team Jamaica co-captains + Scotia Group gets its first female CEO

BORN LEADERS: As Team Jamaica sets it sights on amassing a sizeable stash of medals at the soon-to-commence World Championships in Moscow (August 10-18), sprint phenom Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (above) and hurdler Hansle Parchment, two terrific choices, have been named co-captains of the team, currently in Russia fine-tuning preparations for the nine-day event. “I am proud of what I have been able to accomplish and what I will accomplish,” Fraser-Pryce, arguably our best hope for the gold among the women, is quoted as saying in a recent interview. “And I look forward to many wonderful things in track and field, and maybe, who knows, I can change the game.” 

LEADING LADY: For the first time in its long history, Scotia Group Jamaica has elevated a woman to the post of President and CEO. Effective September 1, long-serving team player Jacqueline Sharp will ascend to the position, replacing Bruce Bowen, who has moved on to the regional post of Senior Vice-President of Caribbean International banking. Sharpe joined Scotia in 1997 and, over the course of five years, has held senior positions in the areas of treasury, finance, private banking and insurance.
