A new Montserrat Director of Information and Communications

New Dir of Info an Coms

Michael Jarvis

A press release announcing an appointment to the public service as far as The Montserrat Reporter can recall was a rarity. The press release that evoked this introduction has to do with the appointment of a new Director of Information and Communications. It comes out of the Government of Montserrat’s Cabinet Secretariat. Montserrat will, or can benefit from that.

Mr. Michael Jarvis, who according to the press release, as confirmed, assumed duties on February 17, 2014, replacing Mrs. Nerissa Golden who resigned the substantive post on December 31, 2014.

Much as we can confirm, Mr. Jarvis comes to this post with quite a wide range of experience in the fields of broadcasting, journalism, communications and media management, along with market research.

The release states: “Montserrat born Jarvis…a former Manager of Radio Montserrat, has also held various roles in regional and international media establishments. These have included; Senior Producer at the BBC’s Caribbean Service in London, Manager of PJD2 and PJD3 in St Maarten, Director of his own company Medialex Communications in St Maarten, News Editor at ZBVI in Tortola , Producer at Radio Netherlands in Holland and Deputy News Editor and Programme Manager at GBBC in St Maarten.”

More recently Jarvis was a Project Coordinator at the London offices of the American market research firm, Schlesinger Associates.

Until Mr. Jarvis took up duty to this appointment, there were mere whispers, but already the small press corps of media personnel are looking forward to a freshness which they believe can only be to the benefit of Montserrat, as it forges forward to the reality of a new identity,‘rising from the ashes’, giving meaning to the resilience that has been long associated with the devastated Montserrat and its remaining people.

Jarvis comes to the job with studies outstanding from over six years ago, advising the reformation of the Government media service. That report is the result hijacked from DFID’s over a decade-old sponsorship of developing the entire Montserrat media, (print, broadcast, radio and television).

From The Montserrat Reporter, welcome Mike J.
