GCCI Message on the Passing Away of Mr. Terrence Holder

The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce & Industry (GCCI) wishes to convey its deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the family of Mr. Terrence Holder.


Mr. Holder spent many years as a private sector leader and advocate, serving on many Boards and Committees of several private sector associations in Guyana. He held many executive level positions at the GCCI, including that of Senior Vice-President, and will also be remembered for his intellect, insightfulness and sagacity on issues that attracted the attention of the Chamber and which affected the country’s social and economic climate.


During his tenure at the GCCI, Mr. Holder was a stanch advocate for corporate social responsibility (CSR) being a fundamental part of the operations of the GCCI and its constituent private sector members and he formulated and led many initiatives in this regard for the Chamber.


He also played the role of mentor to new and young members of the GCCI’s executive, offering valuable counsel and advice as they transitioned into the arena of private sector advocacy.  GCCI President Clinton Urling recalled being a beneficiary of Mr. Holder’s wisdom and understanding on many occasions when he became a member of the Chamber’s executive council.


As his family mourn, may we all take solace in the fact that the contributions he made to Guyana continue to inspire present and future generations and may his dear departed soul rest in peace.
