Her Excellency Helen Kilpatrick CB, Governor of the Cayman Islands (September 2013 - March 2018)
I got to know Derek in the early stages of my appointment as Governor, through his roles at the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman and as President of Cayman Rugby. It soon became apparent what a pillar of the community he is, always aiming to serve and support the island to the best of his ability.
He has been a committed and a hugely beneficial donor to multiple causes through his annual running/climbing for charity. His efforts impressed me so much so much so that I became Patron of his charity appeals for three consecutive years. Most notably, Derek’s fundraising included the 2014 Grand Cayman Hospice appeal that has resulted in the building of a facility valued at over $3million and which will be of huge benefit to the community of the Cayman Islands..
Both personally and professionally, I know Derek to be a man of integrity. His service has been recognised by HM the Queen with honours on three separate occasions:
We at Fidelity are extremely pleased and satisfied with the product and service provided by HDC in preparation for the 2018 storm season. Their experience is well documented, but for a new business, we were particularly impressed with the professionalism and flexibility with which they approached our needs.
We feel certain that Fidelity's employees, assets and business interests are more resilient to future threats through our ongoing and trusted use of HDC. We would highly recommend their services without hesitation.
