Veteran promoter Cranston Browne will be in charge of the National Cultural Foundation for the next year.
The former member of the state agency’s board whose appointment comes into affect from next Monday, will act as the interim CEO until April 21, 2014.
Browne replaces Acting Chief Executive Officer, John Clarke, who was in the post for about a year after Dr. Donna Hunte-Cox’s contract was not renewed.
Clarke will return to his substantive post as Chief Financial Officer at the West Terrace, St. James based organisation.
A statement from the Government Information Service noted that the “Board of the NCF will continue its search for a CEO by widely advertising the post in an attempt to secure a candidate for a longer term contract.”
Barbados TODAY understands that Maureen Graham is tipped to be chairman of the board. (DS)
