HAMILTON, Bermuda, July 25, CMC – British career diplomat Alison Crocket, who previously headed the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Anti-Corruption Unit, was sworn in on Wednesday as the island’s second female Deputy Governor.
She replaces Ginny Ferson, who is moving on to a Foreign Office post in Indonesia after four-and-a-half years in the British Overseas Territory.
Crocket, who was sworn in by Governor John Rankin in a ceremony at Government House, said she was delighted to be given the chance to work in Bermuda.
“I am committed to serving this island to the best of my ability,” she added.
Crocket, who also has experience in counter-narcotics work, justice reform, the fight against international organized crime, and HIV prevention, thanked her predecessor for her work and her support.
“I have big shoes to fill and I will do my best to match her professionalism and dedication,” she said. “As the second female Deputy Governor, I will continue to contribute where I can and to continue to celebrate equality and diversity.”
