Cayman Islands Government
Minister for Tourism & Transport
Kenneth Vernon Bryan was born at the George Town Hospital in Grand Cayman, in the heart of what is now the George Town Central constituency.
He was first elected to the Legislative Assembly (now Parliament) in 2017, when he ran as an independent candidate in George Town Central and has proudly represented that constituency since then. He is also a member of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and participated in many conferences around the world, including being a proponent of taking action to address climate change. Kenneth also served as a member of the Cayman Islands Youth Parliament Committee.
Prior to his political life, Kenneth was known for his time as TV reporter with Cayman 27. He also served as the Political Assistant to the Premier of the Cayman Islands from 2013-2015. He was also the founder of the “Grasp Your Future” voting registration drive in 2013 that helped register over 1,000 young people to participate in the electoral process. In his free time, Kenneth speaks with at-risk youth in various schools, most notably with the “Boys to Men” program.
The experience of living in other countries has allowed Kenneth to gain a worldly perspective that helps with his people-first style of representation, not only for his constituents in George Town Central, but across the Cayman Islands.
Kenneth has a degree in Business Administration from the University College of the Cayman Islands. He is also certified as a Backpack Journalist by the Poynter Institute of Media in Tampa and has experience as a civil servant, having entered the workforce as a fire officer in 1997.
His strengths include being firmly connected to the community and being a persistent individual who never gives up, qualities he plans to draw on most when representing the people of George Town Central and the wider Cayman Islands.
Kenneth is a committed family man and has been married to his wife, Michele, for 12 years. They have two daughters, Renee age 12 and Sienna age 10.
