By BBN Staff: This week the Government of Belize announced the second Chief Executive Officer to vacate their post for the month of November.
The Ministry of Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing (MIDH) announced yesterday that Rey David Guerrero, CEO responsible for Housing, was leaving the ministry. The MIDH said that Guerra was appointed CEO following the amalgamation of the former Ministry of Works and the Ministry of Housing, in an effort to rebuild the Housing Section of the MIDH.
The rebuilding exercise included the development of the low-cost housing project and the establishment of a Housing Execution Unit that is responsible for the management of the construction of the houses. The Ministry stressed that the work he has done has put operations in a position where he is no longer needed as the work can continue without him.
“After one year, the MIDH is even more poised to effectively and efficiently carry out its full mandate with a streamlined ministerial structure. The ministry thanks Mr. Guerrero for his valuable contribution towards the ministry’s development over the past year and wishes him the best of luck as he goes back to his private-sector ventures,” the Ministry said.
Guerrero’s departure follows that of Ministry of Health and Wellness CEO Dr. Deysi Mendez, announced earlier this month, though her transition out of the post was not as smooth. Prime Minister John Briceno addressed Mendez’s departure last week, explaining that Mendez and Minister of Health and Wellness Michel Chebat just did not get along. He says that a new CEO will be appointed shortly.
