Digital Cayman, the industry body representing Cayman’s tech sector, has elected the organisation’s first full executive committee at its annual general meeting on 28 Oct.

SALT Technology Group’s Blair Lilford has been elected as Digital Cayman’s first president.

The organisation said it aims to put Cayman on the map for international tech companies and to enable technology to improve all aspects of business, government and life in the Cayman Islands, according to a press release.

“The Cayman Islands has an amazing opportunity to thrive as a centre of excellence for tech companies and the new executive committee will meet soon to prioritise some of the many areas already identified by Digital Cayman to progress towards a more efficient and digitised economy in the Cayman Islands,” Lilford said in the release.

The other executive committee members are: Alee Fa’amoe (Vice President), Sandra Castello (Treasurer), Adam Lambert (Secretary), Polly Pickering (Director), Charlie Kirkconnell (Director), Chris Wall (Director), Paul Byles (Director) and Vlad Logvinov (Associate Director).

The concept of Digital Cayman was presented in late 2018 at the breakfast forum of Cayman’s Digital Economy Conference (CYDEC) and gained momentum with significant support from its three founding executive committee members, Paul Byles, Charlie Kirkconnell and Chris Wall.

The body was formed and registered as a non-profit organisation in late 2019.

Charlie Kirkconnell, CEO of the CEC said, “We supported the concept from day one because we believe that promoting technology will add value to this jurisdiction from both an economic and social perspective.”

“It’s really great to see it evolve from an idea to this,” said Byles. “This body is something that the Cayman Islands needs at this stage because objectives such as being a SMART island or finding ways for technology to make our lives better need to materialise into actual initiatives led by able persons such as those within Digital Cayman’s membership base.”
