Damian Roderic Todd, former finance director on the board of the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, has been selected as the next governor of the Turks and Caicos, assuming the role in September to succeed current Governor Gordon Wetherell. “I am delighted to be appointed Governor of the Turks and Caicos Islands, which is not only a fascinating new job but also different from postings I have done before,” he said in a statement. “I am looking forward to getting to know the people of the Islands and working with them on all the issues which we face.” Todd previously worked at the British Treasury, along with Foreign and Commonwealth Office postings in South Africa, Czechoslovakia, Germany, Slovakia and Poland. He was the British ambassador to Slovakia from 2001-2004.
