(CNS): Thanks to her work on local business licences, Samone Morgan has received the Chief Officer’s award for February as the top employee for the Ministry of Commerce.

Morgan, the Assistant Secretary for the Trade & Business Licensing Board and the Tobacco Licensing Administrator at the Department of Commerce and Investment (DCI), was presented with her certificate in late March. The honour is part of the Deputy Governor’s award scheme for all civil servants.

Chief Officer for Commerce Dr Dax Basdeo said he chose Morgan for her great customer-service skills, commitment to government values and dedication to her duties.

“Samone was not the only star performer in the ministry as other departments put forth entries for the award,” he said. “However, she proved to be the strongest candidate for the month of February.

“Samone has been doing an exceptional job handling the various accounts for her department. Through her efforts, DCI is ably serving the local economy via its licensing regime, and she deserves to be commended.”

Morgan handles numerous licensing enquiries each day for businesses of all sizes. In liaising with those corporate entities, she said her colleagues deserve credit for their assistance.

“While this award is a great achievement for me personally, I could not perform my duties without the help of my co-workers in DCI,” Morgan said. “I thank my peers for doing their part in helping me serve the community with excellence.”

DCI Director Ryan Rajkumarsingh said his staff members achieve many tasks with limited resources, and that he nominated Morgan for her ability to exceed expectations.

“My department juggles a lot of responsibilities as one of the chief government arms for the local economy,” Rajkumarsingh said.

“As government proceeds with new legislation that will impact Cayman’s business environment, it is increasingly important for staff like Samone to be on top of their assignments.

“She has gone beyond the call of duty in various matters, and has dealt with both trade and business, and tobacco, licensing while learning to handle liquor licensing. It is thanks to staff like Samone that DCI can better serve the needs of our clients.”
