Beacon opens Point Fortin branch
Southern hospitality was rolled out recently as Beacon officially opened its newest branch in Divya’s Mall, Guava Road, Point Fortin. At the event, chief executive Robert Mowser outlined the insurance company’s vision to increase its reach locally and regionally by building on the strategic pillars of technology and relationships. He said the Point Fortin office was the third in as many years and represented a doubling of Beacon’s Trinidad footprint.
Mowser said this rapid growth is a direct result of employing a strategic vision as the company continues to focus on increasing its presence in Caribbean territories. Renato Lezama, vice president of Regional Operations, spearheaded the opening of the new branch in his capacity of vice president, Trinidad Operations, at the time.
Noting that Beacon was warmly welcomed by Vishnu Kalicharan, a stalwart in the Point Fortin business community and owner of the mall in which the new branch is located, Lezama said: “Point Fortin has tremendous opportunities for us to expand our portfolio. We have arrived and we are here to stay.” Guests at the function included Deputy Mayor of Point Fortin Janelle St Hillare; PRO of the Point Fortin South West Chamber of Commerce Ian Ochoa and branch manager of First Citizens, Point Fortin, Trudy Noor.
