Deputy CIO Finds New Career
After five years with the Immigration Department, Deputy Chief Immigration Officer Dennis Brady has taken a leave of absence to pursue a legal career in the private sector.
He has joined the team at Stuarts, Walker, Hersant Attorneys-at-Law.
At a recent farewell function held at the department's Elgin Avenue office, Chief Immigration Officer Franz Manderson thanked Mr Brady for his sterling contribution to the development of the organisation, and to the national security of the Cayman Islands. As deputy CIO, Mr Brady was in charge of enforcement and intelligence.
Specifically, Mr Manderson expressed appreciation for his deputy's support for measures to improve service to the public; strong leadership of the enforcement/intelligence division; and the professionalism he brought to the investigating immigration offences.
"Mr Brady is well known for his dedication to the department, and for not leaving the office each day until the job is done," Mr Manderson observed.
Noting that Mr Brady will be missed, Mr Manderson wished him success in his new undertaking.
In his remarks, Mr Brady expressed gratitude to the department's management and staff, and gave them some advice.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my tenure under the leadership of CIO Manderson," Mr Brady said. "The department has made tremendous progress under (his) leadership, and I urge you to continue to build on that progress."
Mr Brady studied at the Cayman Islands Law School, and was called to the bar at Lincolns Inn in 2001. Prior to that, he had a long and distinguished career in the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) and the Jamaica Constabulary Force, during which time he worked with law enforcement entities in North and Central America.
"I look forward to using the experience garnered over 35 years in law enforcement in my new role as advocate," Mr Brady added.
