The Falkland Islands Development Corporation is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Martin Slater to the recently advertised position of Managing Director.
Mr Slater held the position previously and, following a year of absence from the Islands exploring new horizons, has taken the opportunity to return and pick up the reins again. Martin has been working in change management for the NHS in the UK and will bring valuable new skills and fresh experience to the role.
Martin re-joins the team at a time of great change and uncertainty for our clients in the private sector. With the position of MD at the Corporation’s subsidiary FIMCo in the capable hands of Keith Heslop, Martin will be able to focus his time and attention on delivering FIDC’s objectives. The results of the most recent Business Climate Survey will be feeding into a revision of the Corporation’s Business Plan which will take place over the coming months. Mr Slater will participate in that process, arriving in post ready to lead his team on delivering its strategic mission.
Linking contract opportunities to local business providers is the service from FIDC’s web-based SAROS.
Originally created to put the oil industry in touch with our Islands’ excellent enterprise community, the scope soon extended, making the platform a useful tool for all those with contracts to fulfil.
Over the last year or so, the ‘members’ of SAROs struggled with its technical shortcomings, and FIDC commissioned a rebuild and upgrade to make it work and look better for users. That’s now done.
The SAROS full revamp will make it fit for the future – and give a better user experience for its members. The well-known local IT specialist Brian Jamieson did the tech rebuild and designer Tony Ellis polished up the graphics.
Working towards a highly successful, diverse and sustainable economy for the Falkland Islands
