We look to your work for in­spi­ra­tion

Jamaica Gleaner - - HALL OF FAME -

BUTCH’S LOVE for coun­try, pos­i­tive out­look and com­mit­ment to his fam­ily and staff have all con­trib­uted to mak­ing Ja­maica bet­ter and stronger. It is fit­ting that he should be recog­nised by the PSOJ, es­pe­cially at a time when the coun­try pur­sues eco­nomic growth with re­newed fo­cus and vigour. We can look to his work for in­spi­ra­tion and a solid ex­am­ple of what is pos­si­ble when vi­sion, pas­sion and strate­gic con­sis­tency are ap­plied.

Con­ti­nen­tal Bak­ery has been do­ing busi­ness in Ja­maica for 64 years, while GraceKennedy has for 94 years. Our com­mon his­to­ries in man­u­fac­tur­ing, na­tion build­ing, in­no­va­tion and di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion have seen both com­pa­nies through times of change and chal­lenge. What has been con­sis­tently ev­i­dent is the hu­mil­ity and savvy with which he con­ducts him­self and his af­fairs. His very life re­minds me of the GraceKennedy val­ues of hon­esty, in­tegrity and trust. For this I have tremen­dous re­spect for the man we cel­e­brate to­day. Con­grat­u­la­tions again, Butch, and best wishes to you and your fam­ily as you con­tinue to chart cour­ses that cre­ate and ex­pand busi­ness and em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for Ja­maicans.
