The Ministry of Public Administration and Communications has recognised the work and contribution to national development of former Chairman of Petrotrin, Malcolm Jones.
Maxie Cuffie, Minister of Public Administration and Communications, in extending condolences to the family said Mr Jones made a significant contribution to this country’s energy sector and gave his best years to public service when he could have chosen a far more lucrative path in the private sector.
Mr Jones worked at the Ministry of Petroleum and Mines where he acted in various capacities: Chemical Engineer, Development Engineer, Project Process Engineer, and Associate Project Manager.
Thereafter, Mr Jones served as the President of Trinidad Nitrogen Company Limited before heading the methanol and urea division of the National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago.
He was also Managing Director of the National Gas Company.
Mr Jones was subsequently appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of Titan Methanol Company before taking up the chairmanship of the Board of Directors and CEO of Petrotrin.
Minister Cuffie said this exemplified his dedication to country and showed that Jones took his civic duty seriously.
