Head of the Public Service, Dr. Derrick Binns, stated, “I join the many people who have paid tribute to our colleague and friend, Financial Secretary, Anthony Manders. He was an outstanding financial advisor to Premiers and Ministers. He had the unique ability to clearly explain complex financial matters to non-financial people. As a part of the Public Service Executive, he was able to bluntly communicate key financial points to his colleagues, moving us to action.
“Anthony had a firm command of the Government’s finances, and was readily able to provide a comprehensive response to any question posed. He also had a tremendous amount of patience, together with the ability to get things done. His door was always open and he invited his staff to come to him with questions and solutions.”
Dr. Binns concluded, “On behalf of the Public Service Executive and the entire Public Service, I extend heartfelt condolences to his wife, his sons, family and friends. Today Bermuda lost an outstanding financial leader and we in the Public Service lost a friend.”
