CHAIRMAN of the Jamaica Broilers Group of Companies, Robert Levy, will receive the American Chamber of Commerce in Jamaica (AMCHAM) Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2018 Business and Civic Leadership Awards Gala on Thursday, November 8.

Levy is best known for his advancement of Jamaica's poultry industry, having received the Order of Distinction in the rank of Commander and induction into the Caribbean Poultry Association Hall of Fame. However, AMCHAM is particularly impressed with Levy's involvement in several community and youth development programmes, including his role as director of the King's House Foundation, director of Back to the Bible in Jamaica and trustee of Regent University in the United States.

“Robert's life presents a compelling story of a business leader who, without fanfare, has transformed an industry while contributing to the improvement of young lives and the sustainable development of communities”, stated Allision Peart, president of AMCHAM Jamaica.

“Much of Robert's work is done behind the scenes yet he has impacted so many. The selection committee, therefore, found it fitting to publicly honour this illustrious business leader for his enduring contribution to Jamaica's social and economic development,” she continued.

According to Amcham, the Lifetime Achievement Award is reserved for distinguished business leaders who have dedicated their lives to making significant and lasting contributions to national development, while providing extraordinary examples of ethical leadership and philanthropy. Past recipients of the award include Douglas Orane, retired chairman and CEO of Grace Kennedy Limited and Lascelles Chin, executive chairman and founder of the LASCO Affiliated Companies.
