Victoria Glynis Dean has been appointed the new British High Commissioner to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.

Dean will be non-resident High Commissioner to Antigua, Grenada, Dominica, St Vincent and the Grenadines, St Lucia and St Kitts and Nevis.

She succeeds Paul Brummell, who will be transferring to another diplomatic appointment, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said.

Dean was most recently the head of the Europe Directorate Internal at the FCO; previous stints have included stops in Paris and Washington.

“I am very much looking forward to arriving in the Caribbean and taking up this role as British High Commissioner,” she said in a statement. “The warm bilateral relations between the UK and the countries of the Eastern Caribbean offer up a fantastic platform from which to further strengthen and invigorate our ties. My family and I are delighted to be making this our new home, and feel very lucky indeed.”

Dean takes up her appointment this month.
