The Board of Directors of the Jamaica Public Service Company Ltd. (JPS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Bok Hoa Jeong, as Chairman of the Board of Directors, effective April 8, 2020.
Mr. Jeong brings to JPS, over 30 years of industry knowledge and strong business experience, from both the Korea Electric Power Corporation, (KEPCO) and Korea East West Power Company Ltd. (EWP).
His diverse leadership experience covers several critical areas, including power generation, renewable energy development, new business creation and management of environmental matters. Among his outstanding achievements, is management of the largest anthracite Circulating Fluidized Bed Combustion (CFBC) power plant in the world.
Prior to his appointment at JPS, Mr. Jeong served as Managing Director at Donghae Biomass and CFCB Power Complex, where he managed a number of power plants and energy storage systems, in addition to developing multiple renewable energy projects.
Mr. Jeong says that as Chairman of JPS, his vision is for the company to deliver affordable and reliable electricity to customers. “A common expression in Korea is that ‘you are wasting this as if it’s water or electricity’, which speaks to the affordability and accessibility of these two utilities in Korea. I would like the same thing for Jamaica – where our customers enjoy electricity at an affordable price. This will benefit both the company and our customers, and will lead to sustainable growth and national development for Jamaica,” he said.
