After more than 12 years as chief executive officer of the Barbados Manufacturers Association (BMA) Bobbi McKay has stepped down.
Though not going into detail on her decision, the passionate buy-local advocate confirmed to Barbados TODAY this afternoon that she had officially retired from the organization.
Prior to serving in the post of CEO, McKay, who has been actively lobbying over the years for “a level playing field” for local manufacturers and for Barbadians to buy more locally produced items, served in several capacities in the organization.
However, she was briefly sidelined after suffering an aneurysm in early January 2015.
McKay later returned to work by early July, 2015, albeit working fewer hours per week, after she was released from hospital in late February. (MM)
