Joy Grant replaces Eric Eusey as FIU director

BELIZE CITY, Thurs. Jan. 7, 2016–Amandala has been reliably informed that former Minister of Energy, Science and Technology, and Public Utilities, Joy Grant, is the new director of the Financial Intelligence Unit, replacing former director, Eric Eusey, who assumed the post in January 2014.

Grant, the fifth person and third woman to have been assigned to that post, was unavailable when we called her office today.

Apart from having served as Senator and Minister under the Barrow administration beginning in 2012, Grant was also appointed to serve as chair of the National Bank of Belize.

In November 2008, she was appointed as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belize in Brussels, Belgium, accredited to the European Communities.

Previously, between 2001 and 2005, she served as managing director of The Nature Conservancy, Worldwide Office in Arlington, Virginia and executive director for Programme for Belize from 1989 to 2001.
