Herbert Domacassé succeeds Hyden Gittens at Cft

Herbert DomacasseWillemstad – The Kingdom Council of Ministers appointed Drs. Herbert F. Domacassé last Friday as a member to the board for financial supervision (Cft) on behalf of the public entities Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba per July 1. He succeeds Hyden Gittens, who recently submitted his resignation.

Domacassé has fulfilled a number of functions within the banking industry in Bonaire, Curaçao and Aruba. He has been Minister of Traffic and Transport for the Netherlands Antilles and Lieutenant Governor for Bonaire. Currently he is member of the Supervisory Board of the Caribbean Netherlands Pension Fund.

Gittens was granted an honorable resignation by royal decree just before the termination of his three-year appointment term. Gittens offered his resignation to the Minister of Home Affairs and Kingdom Relations because he accepted a consultancy contract for the public entity Sint Eustatius.

Chairman prof. dr. Age Bakker thanked Gittens for his cooperation. Bakker is pleased that Gittens will uninterruptedly continue to use his expertise to the benefit of the Caribbean Netherlands. The new Cft chairman, prof. dr. Raymond Gradus looks forward to working with Domacassé.
