GRACEKENNEDY has appointed Grace Burnett as the CEO of the insurance segment of the GK Financial Group, while Ryan Mack will take up the deputy CEP position for GK Foods.

Both appointments took effect yesterday.

Burnett will continue as managing director for Jamaica International Insurance Company (JIIC), where she joined as general manager in 2000, before doing a six-year stint at Allied Insurance Brokers as managing director starting in 2007.

Mack's appointment comes at a time when the GK Foods Division is seeking to grow aggressively outside of Jamaica.

While he continues to hold his substantive position as managing director of Grace Foods (UK) Limited, in his new role he will be a key member of the team working to optimise and grow the foods business across the markets.

"Grace and Ryan have proven to be strong, innovative and results-oriented leaders," said GraceKennedy group CEO Don Wehby. "I am confident that they will continue to make GraceKennedy proud, through their significant contribution to our company's goal of becoming a Global Consumer Group."
