Press Release:-St. Lucia, Fri. Dec. 30, 2016: The members of the Caribbean Association of Banks (CAB) are profoundly saddened by the passing of Sir Dwight Venner, former Governor of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) and a most distinguished son of the Caribbean.
Sir Dwight steered the ECCB with distinction for twenty six (26) years until his retirement in 2015.
He was very passionate about protecting the safety and soundness of the financial sector and, by extension, the protection of depositors’ investments.
He believed in sub-regional and regional integration as a path to effective growth and development of our economies and to this end, contributed towards the formation of a number of regional institutions.
Additionally, the CAB is appreciative of his extensive publications in the areas of Monetary and International Economics, Central Banking, Public Finance, Economic Development, Political Economy and International Economic Relations etc. which will serve to provide knowledge and direction for many generations.
The CAB offers its deepest and heartfelt condolences to his wife, Lady Lynda Venner, their children and grandchildren, as well as other members of their family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with them as the region mourns the passing of this beloved son who will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.
