New Deputy Governor sworn in
A British career diplomat was sworn in yesterday as the island’s second woman Deputy Governor.
Alison Crocket takes over from Ginny Ferson, who is moving on to a Foreign Office post in Indonesia.
Ms Crocket is delighted to be given the chance to work in Bermuda and was stunned by the island’s beauty.
She said: “I am committed to serving this island to the best of my ability.”
Ms Crocket was the head of the Foreign Office’s Anti-Corruption Unit, based in London.
She also has experience in counter-narcotics work, justice reform, international organised crime and HIV prevention.
Ms Crocket thanked her predecessor for her support.
She said: “I have big shoes to fill and I will do my best to match her professionalism and dedication.
“As the second female Deputy Governor, I will continue to contribute where I can and to continue to celebrate equality and diversity.”
Ms Crocket was sworn in by John Rankin, the Governor, at a ceremony at Government House.
Mr Rankin thanked Ms Ferson for her work, which included helping to safeguard children and promotion of women’s concerns.
