NYC Comptroller To Address Caribbean Power Breakfast

NEW YORK - New York City Comptroller John Liu, who helps manage $646 million in pension funds for New York City, is set to address the inaugural Invest Caribbean Power Breakfast next Thursday in mid-town Manhattan.

Liu serves as the 43rd Comptroller of the City after being independently elected in 2009. He is hailed as a "trailblazer" and "pioneer," since he is the first Asian American elected in New York City - both to legislative office in 2001 and citywide office in 2009. 
  
Panelists of the investment event include Martin Mohabeer, the Guyana-bornManaging Director of Spackman Group and CEO of Spackman Capital; W. Dave Dowrich, Vice President at Goldman Sachs, and David Brillembourg, CEO of the Brilla Group. 
  
The Hard Beat/CTO forum will be moderated by Professor Temisan Agbeyegbe, professor of Economics at Hunter College and Graduate Center, City University of New York and a research associate with The Caribbean Center for Monetary Studies, The University of The West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. 
  
Brian Lilly, CEO of Lilly Broadcasting; Chairman of the Caribbean Tourism Organization and St. Kitts/Nevis minister of tourism, Ricky Skerritt and several Caribbean tourism ministers of government, commissioners and directors of tourism as well as officials of the Caribbean Tourism Organization, including Secretary General Hugh Riley and others from the business, travel and investment community will also be in attendance.
