Anti-corruption expert is new Deputy Governor
A new deputy governor will take over from Ginny Ferson, the Governor announced today.
Alison Crocket, an expert in anti-corruption work, will replace Ms Ferson in August.
Ms Crocket said: “I am very excited at the opportunity to serve Bermuda and its people in the role of Deputy Governor.
“I have already begun learning about the issues that are important to Bermuda and familiarising myself with my constitutional responsibilities.
“My family and I look forward to meeting new friends from all backgrounds and across all walks of life in Bermuda.”
Ms Crocket joined the Diplomatic Service in 2001 after a career in local government social services and the children's charity Barnado's.
Her present post is head of the anti-corruption unit in the Foreign Office.
She played a leading role in drafting international aspects of the British Government's anti-corruption strategy.
She earlier served in Vienna, Austria, where she worked on counter-narcotics programmes, justice reform and international organised crime, as well as HIV prevention and public health programmes.
Ms Crocket, who has two adult daughters, will be accompanied by her long-term partner, Pete.
