CIBC FirstCaribbean elected to FIBA board of directors

When the Financial and International Business Association (FIBA) held its annual meeting in December, CIBC FirstCaribbean was elected to serve as a member of its Board of Directors. 

This is not just a first for the regional bank, but it is the first time that a Caribbean bank has been appointed to the board in its over four-decade history. 

The bank’s Chief Compliance Officer, Candice Huggins will represent the bank on the Board of Directors for a period of one year. 

Candice noted, “the fact that CIBC FirstCaribbean was asked to serve on the Board of Directors of FIBA is testament to the recognition of the strength of our AML/ATF and ABAC programs, and our commitment to ensuring Regulatory compliance regionally and internationally.”
