Henderson Holmes is a graduate of the St. Augustine campus of the University of the West Indies, with a BSc (Honours) degree in Industrial Management. He was also trained in consulting for small and medium-sized business development and is a Fellow of International Management Centres Association (FIMCA).
After a stint in the Barbados Civil Service where he left in the position of Senior Auditor in the Auditor General’s Department, he was involved in economic development planning and administration for over 20 years during which time he held a number of positions within the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation (BIDC) culminating with that of Director of their New York Office.
Since leaving the BIDC in 1999 he held the position of Managing Director of a Barbadian subsidiary of a US data management company.
From 2001 he worked as a consultant in the region. Among the projects he completed in this capacity was a World Bank-Funded project executed by the Caricom Secretariat, where he was responsible for doing investment climate studies of Bahamas, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Barbados. He was also the sole consultant hired by the National Development Corporation of Dominica, to study the economic development landscape in that country and advise on the approach the country should take to expand its information and communications technology sector.
Prior to taking up his current position of Executive Director of the Barbados International Business Association, he had returned to the Barbados Investment and Development Corporation for two (2) years as a consultant responsible for developing and executing programmes to expand the international business sector in Barbados.
In this role he was responsible for the planning and staging of the very successful Barbados International Financial Services Conference 2003, which attracted participation from North America, Europe and the Caribbean.
As a member of the May Hinds Consulting team since 2002, he assumes leadership in the delivery of strategic planning and inventory management and control assignments, but plays an invaluable analytical and quality assurance role on most other projects.
