KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Board of Directors of the Urban Development Corporation (UDC) has appointed Heather Pinnock, general manager of the entity as of April 1, 2019.

The UDC said that Pinnock previously acted as general manager from September 24, 2018 until the time of her appointment.

Prior to that Pinnock served as deputy general manager, Planning Development and Project Management Division.

According to Chairman, Senator Ransford Braham, the board “extends its full support and good wishes to Pinnock as she embarks on this new journey.”

The board said that it expects that the UDC will continue its transformative mission of making development happen by delivering mega-projects such as the Closed Harbour Beach Park in Montego Bay, for which ground was recently broken.

Pinnock will provide leadership for a team of almost 1,000 professionals spanning disciplines of technical services, legal, finance, estate management, integrated marketing communication and environmental management.

Her professional experience includes key public sector roles including Chief Technical Director at the then Ministry of Water and Housing, Senior Project Manager at the National Housing Trust and Consultant Senior Project Manager with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago's Housing Development Corporation.
