Min­is­ter of Finance and Eco­nomic Af­fairs Christo­pher Sinck­ler ap­proved the ap­point­ment which will take ef­fect from Jan­uary 1.

The new Gov­er­nor has more than 37 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in cen­tral bank­ing, with em­pha­sis on macroe­co­nomic pol­icy and bank reg­u­la­tion.

He acted from Fe­bru­ary 24, 2017, af­ter he took over from Dr Delisle Wor­rell who was fired.

“I am hon­oured by the con­fi­dence re­posed in me by the Gov­ern­ment of Bar­ba­dos. I un­der­take this as­sign­ment at a chal­leng­ing time, but I am con­fi­dent that, to­gether with my team and the as­sis­tance and co­op­er­a­tion of all stake­hold­ers, the bank can pro­vide the lead­er­ship needed at this time,” Haynes said in a state­ment.

He started his ca­reer at the bank as a re­search trainee in 1980 and held var­i­ous po­si­tions, in­clud­ing ad­vi­sor to for­mer gov­er­nors Calvin Springer, Win­ston Cox, and Dr Mar­ion Wil­liams.

He was Deputy Gov­er­nor from Fe­bru­ary 2009 un­til early this year.

His ten­ure at the Cen­tral Bank was briefly in­ter­rupted from 1987 to 1989, when he served as tech­ni­cal as­sis­tant to the Cana­dian ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor at the In­ter­na­tional Mon­e­tary Fund.

Haynes at­tended the Univer­sity of the West Indies, Cave Hill cam­pus, where he re­ceived a Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in eco­nomics. He went on to the Univer­sity of Western On­tario and earned a Mas­ter of Sci­ence in eco­nomics.

He has au­thored and co-au­thored sev­eral pub­li­ca­tions, prin­ci­pally on eco­nomic pol­icy, debt and fi­nan­cial sec­tor is­sues. ( PR/SAT)
