St. Maarten – The management and supervisory board of directors of the Princess Juliana International Airport recently bid farewell to chairman Clarence Derby, whose term on the board came to an end last month.

Derby served as a board member from 2009 and became chairman in 2011, a position he held until his term expired.

At the farewell dinner at Temptations Restaurant, Managing Director Regina Labega described Derby as “hardworking, trustworthy, and dependable; a gentleman who sticks to his guns when he arrives at a decision and a leader who knows how to listen. He is consistent, conscientious and a convincingly creative mind with whom I’ve also had the privilege to work on Summerfest and several other projects and activities in the interest of tourism and the promotion of St. Maarten as a year-round destination.”

Among his achievements, Labega highlighted Derby’s role in “securing the Moody’s rating for the airport as well as his invaluable contribution to the successful closing of the bond issue,” which has allowed the airport to pursue the ongoing capital improvement program and therefore further modernize its facilities.

“Mr. Derby has served our company well in every sense of the word. And by extension, he has made a meaningful contribution to the development of our island through his service to the Princess Juliana International Airport,” Labega said.
