Cecile Watson, CEO & Co-Founder
Cecile Watson, the CEO & Founder of Pitch&Choose, has the distinction of being the first Barbadian with a First Class honours degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of the West Indies. Here is what Cecile has to say:
Hello! I am Cecile and I have researched the crowdfunding model and designed Pitch&Choose to be especially relevant to our Caribbean market. Before starting Pitch&Choose, I was the Managing Director of the largest mortgage provider in Jamaica, a public sector entity with a mandate that includes affordable housing and building communities. It was here that the tremendous needs of our people really touched me, and solidified for me my insatiable desire to make a difference for our Caribbean communities. Prior to my public sector role, I spent many years in senior roles in the Banking and Financial sector regionally and also in Canada.
