Caribbean Association of Banks
Wendy brings over 20 years of experience in mainstream banking to the leadership of the Caribbean Association of Banks Inc., having previously worked with Scotiabank. Wendy says that she is ever grateful for the opportunities for growth which allowed her to challenge herself and become a solid individual in the field of finance. During her journey with the Bank, Wendy held progressively senior roles, having started her career in Retail Banking as a Teller, moving into Customer Service and then lending. From there, Wendy broke off into training, where she rediscovered her love for imparting knowledge, as she worked throughout the region implementing new technological enhancements to the Banking framework. On her return, Wendy assumed the role of Home Mortgage Specialist with a focus on dealing specifically with the International Business portfolio. Wendy later joined the MDO in Barbados as Retail and Small Business Coach, a position she retained for 2 years before returning to Saint Lucia as the Branch Manager for the Castries operation. She later took on the role of President of the Bankers Association of Saint Lucia. Both posts she held until she joined the CAB in November 2018.
Wendy currently holds an MSc in Global Human Resource Management, which she believes deepens her passion for nurturing growth with the people she encounters daily.
Wendy describes herself as a well-balanced individual who is career driven and self-motivated, but she notes that life has ensured that she appreciates the opportunities to stop and smell the roses – those being family and friends – being intimately familiar with the sting of loss. Wendy is a widow, and mother to 3 beautiful boys, whom she describes as her foundation. Wendy says that they keep her grounded and challenge her daily to be the best version of herself.
