The Department for International Development (DFID) has announced today, Monday, 18 March 2013, that it has nominated Stephen Turnbull as the TCI’s new CFO for an interim period with effect from 4 May 2013.

Mr. Turnbull will travel to TCI this week to begin handover and to assist the Ministry of Finance with its budget and fiscal planning. He is a qualified accountant with more than twenty years of experience, of which over five years have been in Overseas Territories, including two as a Public Finance Adviser in TCI.

Mr. Turnbull will remain CFO until the end of August, during which time he will help the TCI Government to continue on its path towards sustainable public finances. DFID is in the process of recruiting a permanent CFO to take over from Mr. Turnbull in due course.
