PROVEN President and CEO Christopher Williams on Friday confessed that the company tried hard to persuade Chorvelle Johnson to stay after she had indicated that she would take up an offer elsewhere.

“We fought hard to keep her but we could not,” Williams told the Jamaica Observer.

“She has not indicated where's she's going, but she has received another offer. We're very proud of her and the fact that she was head-hunted,” Williams said.

On Thursday, PROVEN announced in a news release that Johnson had resigned as president and CEO of PROVEN Wealth Limited and PROVEN Fund Managers Limited after six years.

The investment company said that during her tenure Johnson was responsible for providing strategic leadership for the companies by working with the board and her management teams to establish long-range goals, strategies, plans and policies to improve client services.

“She has been successful in advancing the vision of the companies by realising significant growth in the client base as well as increase in the businesses' profitability,” PROVEN stated in the release.

The company added that Johnson is leaving both PROVEN Wealth Limited and PROVEN Fund Managers Limited “in a very strong position for continued growth” and thanked her for her contribution and leadership during her tenure as president and CEO.

On Friday, Williams said that until Johnson demits office on January 26, 2018 he will “assume the mantle immediately and kinda shadow her. Then we will move towards finding a replacement.”

He said that Johnson joined PROVEN in its second year of operation and has been “a gem” to work with.

“Every single member of the team is devastated that she has decided to take on another challenge, but we're proud of her. We like to see our people grow, and we think she's going to do phenomenally well wherever she goes,” Williams told Sunday Finance.

“Chorvelle has a commendable knowledge of the financial services industry. She has served PROVEN creditably and has been instrumental in its growth. We wish her success in all her future endeavours,” the company release quoted Williams.
