Business / News / Virgin Islands / March 7, 2019

The U.S.V.I.’s Economic Development Authority (EDA) announced Thursday that Governor Albert Bryan appointed three new members to the EDA Board of Directors: Dept. of Labor Commissioner Nominee Gary Molloy, Dept. of Agriculture Commissioner Nominee Positive Nelson, and Bryan administration Deputy Chief of Staff, Kevin Rodriquez. 

In accordance with VI law, the new members — along with those appointed already — will serve at the pleasure of the governor. Mr. Bryan once led the E.D.A.

The E.D.A. is a semi-autonomous government organization responsible for promoting economic growth, job creation, and wealth generation in the U.S. Virgin Islands, America’s Business Paradise. Its four major divisions are the Economic Development Commission, Enterprise Zone Commission, Economic Development Park Corporation, and the Economic Development Bank. 

“We are very excited to welcome three new Board members to the USVIEDA as it promotes economic opportunity and prosperity throughout the U.S. Virgin Islands,” said E.D.A. Board Chair José A. Penn. “We look forward to working with these leaders as we continue to advance programs designed to improve the economic well-being of our residents.”
