MONEY WISE: For the first time in the bank’s 127 years of operating locally, a Jamaican has been appointed Chairman of the ScotiaBank Group. Jeffrey Hall, a Harvard Law School and Washington University grad, succeeds Sylvia Chrominska, who held the post for the past two years. Hall, whose tenure took effect on March 4, says his top priority is the “creation of more value for the company’s investors and customers.” A married father of two, Hall also serves as Chairman of Kingston Wharves and CEO of Jamaica Producers Group. He has been a director on Scotia’s board since 2007 and also heads up the bank’s HR and Pensions Committee. Scotia Group is the second largest bank in Jamaica, with assets of close to $440 billion.
