Lululemon names new chief financial officer as search continues for new CEO

first_imgVANCOUVER – Lululemon Athletica Inc. has appointed Patrick Guido as chief financial officer as its search continues for a new chief executive.The Vancouver-based clothing company says Guido, who most recently worked as treasurer and vice-president of corporate development at VF Corp., will report to chief operating officer Stuart Haselden.Lululemon has been without a CEO since early February when Laurent Potdevin suddenly stepped down from the post after the company said he “fell short” of its standards of conduct.Executive chairman Glenn Murphy told a March conference call with financial analysts that the company had met with several possible candidates, but would be taking its time in its search for a replacement.Potdevin reached a separation agreement with the company that will see him receive $3.35 million in cash, plus a further $1.65 million paid in monthly instalments over 18 months, while agreeing not to sue the company and co-operate with it in the future.The company also lost its executive vice-president and creative director at the end of last year when Lee Holman resigned.last_img read more

Police Commissioner Issues Press Release

first_img Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 10 Nov 2014 – Police Commissioner Colin Farquhar explained the RTCIPF will issue a press release on the results of the sufficiency hearing in the case of suspended officer, Constable Mikhail Hinson, who was on Friday released from answering to the five charges of setting fire. The court determined there was not enough evidence to go forward with the case. Hinson, 24, was arrested, suspended and remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison for the late September arson at the Chalk Sound police station where the building and four vehicles were set ablaze. Magnetic Media in a letter of concern cited that the Police Force continues to be standoffish with media and the public about major crimes in the country, our company adding that perhaps this is among the reasons there is such lackluster of support from the general public when it comes to investigations. Still outstanding: sufficient leads and evidence in the murder probe of businessman Robert Been Sr from March 4 this year; an update in the new investigation of Damaris Martinez of the Dominican Republic; the jury returned a not guilty for Romano Howell on October 8… however it is certain the woman was murdered by someone and her body dumped on the roadside here in Provo; no updates in the case of North Caicos’ Quincy Gardiner where media is still waiting on the results of an autopsy and for an update on what will happen to the man once held for questioning the case. And now Police will have to start over in the case to find who is responsible for the torching one of the new police patrol vehicles. These are but some of the cases where it is reported that evidence is insufficient to move to a full trial.

DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS PRESS RELEASE – Preliminary Results — Labour Force Survey

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, August 14, 2017 – Nassau – Unemployment rate in the Bahamas declines 1.7%.  Since November 2016, the unemployment rate declined from 11.6% to 9.9% due to an increase (7,770) of employed persons and a decrease (3,485) of unemployed persons. The three most populated islands that were surveyed experienced decreases in their unemployment rates. At the time of the survey (April 24 – 30, 2017) the rate in New Providence was 10.4%; in Grand Bahama, 12.4%, and Abaco 7.8%.Among the employed labour force, there were more men than women. However, in all the islands surveyed except Abaco, men were fewer in numbers among the unemployed labour force. In May 2017, vulnerable employment was 8.2% of total employment. During the period 2012 to 2017, the share of workers in vulnerable employment was fairly stable and ranged between 7.0% and 9.2% of the employed labour force.The percentage of men in this category was higher, although the percentage points differences between men and women were fairly small. These workers as defined by ILO are less likely to have formal work arrangements, and more likely to lack decent working conditions and are often characterized by inadequate earnings and benefits.The private sector absorbed most of the new jobs since November 2016. However, when examined by industry, the “Community, Social and Personal Service” industry which includes the civil service, police service and the domestic services posted a 29.1% increase in employment; hotels and restaurants posted 26.2% increase and construction posted 20.0% increase.Unemployment among youths (15-24 years) in the country continued to be considerably higher than any other age group which is common to most countries. However, there was a slight decline in the rate from 25.1% recorded in November 2016 to 24.1%.Discouraged workers in the country declined by 8.8% over the six month period. New Providence, Grand Bahama and Abaco experienced declines in the number of discouraged workers – 11.3%, 8.1% and 14.6%, respectively. These persons, according to the standard definition of the International Labour Organization (ILO), ‘’did not look for work because they believed no jobs were available for them’’.The Department of Statistics is the Government Agency in The Bahamas mandated by law to collect, process, analyze and disseminate statistics. Its mandate is to deliver timely official statistics. Please contact the Department of Statistics @ 242-604- 4000 for questions and enquiries. This release, with accompanying tables, will be immediately available on the Department’s website, www.bahamas.gov.bs/statistics. Further details will be available by September 2017.
