CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM
THE ANSA McAL GROUP CHAIRMAN AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE
A. NORMAN SABGA
My fellow Executives and members of the ANSA McAL family here in Trinidad and Tobago and across the region in Guyana, Barbados, Grenada, St Kitts & Nevis and the United States, it gives me great pleasure to send you this greeting for the Christmas Season 2009 and New Year 2010.
The past year has been one of the more challenging in our long history. The global financial crisis put new imperatives on us as professionals and as a Group to ensure that we not only survived, but also pursued and won new markets, improved our operations, delivered on targets and continued our pursuit of excellence.
Now looking ahead towards our Destination V10, we are even more confident than before that we will deliver on these ambitious targets we set for ourselves and stand once again in the light of achievement.
It is not enough, however, to express confidence in achieving our targets. The measure of our achievement is based on the dedication, the expertise, the commitment and the strength of the men and women who steer the ANSA McAL ship on a daily basis.
And at this time of Christmas, there is no better time to reflect on this dedication and commitment. Some of you are the first in and last out at your offices on most days. Some of you go to your workplace on the weekends to ensure that you can deliver on time and on target. Some of you do more than is required and go much further than is expected. At times, your dedication is at the expense of your own time, with family, friends and loved ones.
Don’t for a moment think it goes unnoticed. Without such dedication, the ANSA McAL Group would not be where it is today. I appreciate and praise your dedication and in this season of Christmas, send you and your family my heartfelt gratitude and best wishes.
As you enjoy the festivities with friends and family, as you give and receive presents, as you gather to celebrate, please accept my best wishes to you all and your families for a safe and enjoyable Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
May God bless and keep you all. See you next year!
