Bahamas Supermarkets Appoints Financial Controller

Jan 28, 2008

Bahamas Supermarkets Limited (BSL), operators of 12 City Market stores in New Providence and Grand Bahama, announced today it has named Evangeline ˜Vangy" Rahming, FCCA, (from Upper Bogue, Eleuthera) Financial Controller.

We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Evangeline Rahming who brings more than 10 years' experience in public accounting, said Bryan Knowles, Vice President and Chief Financial and Administrative Officer of the company with annual sales of some $140 million.

A Bahamian, Ms. Rahming is a UK-certified accountant, a Fellow of the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants and a member of The Bahamas Institute of Chartered Accountants (BICA). She holds a Bachelor of Computer Science from the University of Windsor, Canada.

Her appointment is part of a strengthening exercise to bring additional top professional management skills to the company following its transition just over a year ago when majority shares were purchased from foreign-owned Winn-Dixie. Since then, Bahamas Supermarkets with some 2,500 shareholders has made major capital investments, undertaking store improvements, upgrading equipment, building its human resources training, broadening product lines and installing new systems. Last January, it opened the first new store in over a decade, unveiling its new signature style with brighter lighting, wider aisles, price scanners for customer use at aisle ends, an expanded organic foods section and full deli. The company expects to complete installation of point-of-sales scanners in all 12 stores by mid-February.

BSL supports numerous community efforts but is best recognised for its ambitious scholarship program. Since its inception in 1988, it has awarded more than $7.8 million in scholarship funds, helping to pave the way for nearly 1,600 students to further their education, among them the newly-appointed Financial Controller.
