CEO of Business Bermuda retires

After more than six years as chief executive officer of Business Bermuda, Cheryl Packwood has announced her retirement from the organisation.

Ms Packwood is moving on to explore other international opportunities, including interviewing for the CEO position with the Bermuda Business Development Corporation (BBDC). The BBDC will be the new almagamated organisation of Business Bermuda and the Insurance Development Council. She has also been interviewing for several other posts here in Bermuda and abroad — focusing on developing markets in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

“I’m really excited about all the different opportunities out there,” she said in an interview with

The Royal Gazette.

David Cash, Chairman of Business Bermuda, commented: “Cheryl Packwood has achieved great things at Bermuda Business and for the Island. She has been the Island’s spokesperson and ambassador for business. The Board wishes to thank her for her hard work and vision. We wish her every success in her future endeavours.”

Ms Packwood began working with the Bermuda International Business Association in October 2006 after serving as general manager at AT&T and Cingular Wireless that later became Digicel Bermuda and director of Legal Services, Enforcement and International Affairs at the Bermuda Monetary Authority.

She also worked in Cote d’Ivoire as the managing director of Western Wireless International Corporation preceded by a career in law with N’Goam, Asman & Associates in Cote d’Ivoire and Shearman & Sterling in New York City.

In April 2012, Ms Packwood was named as an Industry Leader in MENA FM’s Service Provider Power 50 of 2012 for her work promoting Bermuda internationally.
