Kim Tudor has spent the last three decades enriching the lives of Barbadians through her professional career and tireless church and voluntary work in the community. It is evident that the common thread that runs through the fabric of this talented and committed woman’s varied activities and contributions is a passion for service. As the first and only CEO to date of the National Initiative for Service Excellence (NISE), Kim has pioneered the pursuit of a national culture of service excellence. NISE is now recognised as the lead organisation for service excellence in Barbados and throughout the region.
This energetic professional has also contributed to the development of countless Barbadian and Caribbean business people through her career in academia. She was Corporate Services Director at the Centre for Management Development, UWI Cave Hill and is currently a part-time lecturer with the Cave Hill School of Business and the Masters Programmes of the Barbados Institute of Management and Productivity (BIMAP). A Certified Management Accountant, who holds an MBA from Syracuse University and a B.Sc. from the University of the West Indies, Kim is also a Certified Manager of Quality/Organisational Excellence and has completed leadership programmes at the Harvard Business School. A member of a loving family from Brereton, St Philip, led by a devoted father, Martin Tudor a now retired postman of 35 years and the late Ellena Tudor, both stalwarts of the Democratic Labour Party, Kim has sought to assist other Barbadian young people with potential from similar humble beginnings as a mentor, particularly in the accounting profession and entrepreneurship.
This visionary daughter of the soil and woman of action now seeks the opportunity to bring her passion for service, her outstanding training and experience to help meet the needs and aspirations of the people of St Michael North.
