The Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of our former President Hon. Beverley Lopez OJ, CD.

Mrs. Lopez was a passionate and indomitable businesswoman and a true Jamaican patriot.

She served as the PSOJ’s president between 2003 – 2005 – only the second woman to hold that position in the Organisation’s history.

She was tireless in her efforts to champion the development of the private sector, particularly for small businesses and exporters, at times in face of daunting obstacles. During her tenure at the helm of the Organisation, she spearheaded a number of multilateral projects aimed at finding long term solutions for exporters. Her legacy will remain forever etched in the annals of Jamaica’s commercial history.
