Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon at his post-Cabinet press briefing at the Office of the President on Wednesday announced that Keith Burrowes has been appointed to the top position.
Over the years, Burrowes sat on the boards of several entities both in the public and private sectors. These include: chairman of the board of directors at the Guyana Chronicle, and head of Health Sector Development Unit within the Health Ministry.
