Ambassador Marks was the first female President of the American Chamber of Commerce of Jamaica (AMCHAM), an organization which promotes investment and trade between the United States and Jamaica. She is also the Ernest & Young Nominee for the “Caribbean Entrepreneur of the Year 2000;” Business Leader of the Year Award nominee for 2000; and the Florida International University Business Leader of the Year Award for 2003 and 2010.

 

An entrepreneur at heart, she earned her M.B.A. from then Nova University. Among her many accomplishments, she founded Paymaster (Jamaica) Limited, a multi-transaction company which she conceptualized and started in 1997. Paymaster, the first multi-transaction agency in the Caribbean, operates payment agencies from which all types of bill payments and remittances can be made. The company provided services to over 1.4 million customers and employment for over 400 persons with annual transactions of over $40 billion.

 

Ambassador Marks’ South Florida Town Hall will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Morton and Marie Morris Auditorium in NSU’s Health Professions Division on Nova’s Davie campus.
