ECCO Chief Executive Officer sent on leave

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Eastern Caribbean Collective Organisation for Music Rights (ECCO), Steve Etienne, has been sent on 30 days leave by the board of directors of the organisation.

The decision was reportedly taken at a board meeting Tuesday.

According to information obtained by St Lucia Times, Etienne, who was present at that gathering, was asked to leave the ECCO premises where the the meeting was being held.

The board of directors is understood to be in the process of undertaking a detailed review of ECCO’s operations and as a result requested that Etienne take immediate leave.

A new Chairman, Martin James, is expected to serve until ECCO’s next annual general meeting.

The date for the meeting is yet to be announced.

    I don’t know if I’m the only one – or if I speak for anyone else, but I’ve always sensed simething shady in the “goings-on” of ECCO (according to what comes out in the news). If that’s so, I hope it’s nipped at the bud in time, and those to get monies, are paid correctly and swiftly.

      Sorry my friend, that thing has blossomed, it was in the budding stages when Darby was in there and it was called H.M.S

    Let us reserve judgement. This in no way means that Mr Etienne is guilty of anything. Let’s await the outcome of this investigation but I never was in agreement of this body as I felt that funds taken from consumers under the guise that they were being remitted to the rightful owner, was a sham. And this body threw it’s weight around shamelessly.
