The Massy Group has appointed Attorney at Law Kerywn Garcia, SC, to investigate claims made by its former executive vice president of business integrity and group general counsel Angélique Parisot-Potter about its executive leadership programme.
Garcia will lead the investigations with attorney Vishma Jaisingh.
Parisot-Potter raised concerns about the Company’s engagement of the Delphi Sphere Consulting, run by a couple, Paul Dominguez and Indira Dial-Dominguez for its leadership program.
On December 18, at the company’s 100th annual general meeting, Parisot-Potter voiced concerns about the conglomerate’s executive leadership consultant. Parisot-Potter claimed that Delphi engages in bizarre rituals for executives, that their leadership programme is a drain of scarce foreign exchange and that the couple leading the programme appear to exert disproportionate influence over the Massy groups executive team.
Parisot-Potter informed the company’s Board of directors, chaired by Robert Riley, that she had written to Executive Director Gervaise Warner but received no communication on the matter so she was compelled to raise the matter at the AGM.
Massy’s board of directors subsequently dismissed her claims as “untrue” and “scandalous” and said it was appalled by her conduct and had initiated a disciplinary process against her duties as the general counsel to the company and “will follow due process to determine how this should be handled responsibly yet decisively.” Parisot-Potter was sent on administrative leave until January 12, 2024 but she resigned on December 27 with immediate effect.
