The current Director of Office of Financial Sanction Implementation in Her Majesty’s Treasury, Rena Lalgie, has been appointed as Bermuda’s next Governor.
Her appointment makes her the first Black, as well as, female Governor of the island nation.
Ms. Lalgie said she is “immensely proud” to be appointed as the island’s first female Governor.
The Governor of Bermuda is appointed by the British monarch on the advice of the Prime Minister.
The Governor’s responsibilities include “external affairs, defence, internal security, and the police” as well as any other duties assigned by the British monarch or his/her ministers, the Bermuda government explains.
