The business world is in shock with the passing of Eon Caesar, 47, President of the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA).
Both the Government and GMSA issued separate statements praising the work of Caesar, a
businessman who was involved in the security field.
According to President David Granger, Caesar will be remembered for his passion for the development of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector and his ability to find quick solutions to the most challenging of problems.
The businessman was also the Managing Director of Safeway Security.
Caesar was an Electrical Engineer by profession and whose company was established in 2006 soon after he graduated from the University of the West Indies.
“This passion had earned him a reputation for a high standard of electronic solutions for domestic and public sector security and saw him heading the GMSA’s Security and Governance Sub-committee since 2013, before being elected to serve as President last year.”
Granger expressed sympathy to Caesar’s wife, Saudia; his two daughters as well as other family members and friends.
According to GMSA, the death of its president has rocked the organisation. It was the first time in the 53-year history of the GMSA that it has lost a sitting President. Caesar passed away on Friday in neighbouring Trinidad shortly after he was medivac-ed to a specialty hospital there.
“At a very youthful 47, he has left behind an entity (GMSA) that was only just beginning to benefit from his expertise in Business Management and his passion for Information Communication Technology (ICT).”
The association disclosed that it was only this past March, just nine months ago, that he was elected President.
He had been serving as Vice President of the GMSA since 2013, holding specific responsibility for Security and Governance.
“In the past six months, he had spearheaded the design, and led the early implementation of a proactive strategic plan to align the GMSA even more closely with industry stakeholders, among other things.”
GMSA said that Caesar’s passing is a shock, the after effects of which will linger for a very long time.
“We especially regret the fact that he will not be able to implement the new measures he had designed to enhance the effectiveness of the GMSA, and to participate in the nation’s drive to digitize our businesses, services and civil society as a whole.”
