Lillian Misick has been named the new Chair of the National Insurance Board of Turks and Caicos, the government announced today.

Misick will replace Ervine Quelch, who will complete his five-year term tomorrow.

“I am very pleased to confirm that Lillian Misick will be the new chair of the NIB,” said Acting Governor Patrick Boyle.

“Ms Misick is a well-respected figure in the Turks and Caicos Islands and has repeatedly demonstrated her commitment to the islands, in particular through her work on the Consultative Forum, which she will continue to chair.”

Misick’s appointment will take effect April 1.

“I know that the NIB has some challenges to resolve, some of which have become controversial in recent months,” Misick said.

“I want to work hard to bring these to a sensible conclusion quickly for the good of all the NIB’s contributors and beneficiaries.”
