Pres. Sirleaf Lauds Chevron Outgoing Country Manager

MONROVIA, September 1 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has lauded the outgoing Country Manager of Chevron Liberia Limited, Mr. Karl Cottrell, for services rendered the Liberian people during seven years of “good work” in the country.

The Liberian leader said this included assistance to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, the country’s largest referral health facility.

“I like to applaud you for all you have done for Liberia and Liberians,” President Sirleaf said. 

She said more needs to be done for the J. F. K. Hospital because, according to her, the hospital is one of the areas her government is prioritizing now.

President Sirleaf made the commendation when outgoing Country Manager Cottrell paid a courtesy call on her, according to an Executive Mansion release.

She said she was pleased with his decision to take leave and assured Cottrell of her government’s fullest cooperation with the Chevron team. 

The Liberian leader said she was delighted for him leaving a Liberian in charge, something she said is a clear manifestation of team work.

In brief remarks, Cottrell thanked President Sirleaf for the cordial working relationship and the opportunity to invest in Liberia and pledged his institution’s support to Liberia.

Cottrell is expected to depart Liberia next week for another assignment.  

He was accompanied by Messrs Iain Case, Commercial Manager; Kollie G. Gizzie (a Liberian), David B. Smith, and Cllr. Althea Sherman of NOCAL.
