Seychelles Minister Alain St.Ange congratulates his brother Perin St.Ange on his appointment as Vice President of IFAD

Seychelles Minister Alain St.Ange congratulates his brother Perin St.Ange on his appointment as Vice President of IFAD ( Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, has congratulated his brother, Perin St.Ange, on his appointment as Vice President of IFAD as well as becoming effective February 1, the Director of the Office of the President and Chief of Staff. Perin St.Ange was the current Director of the Eastern and Southern Africa Division (ESA) for IFAD.

Perin St.Ange has had a long and successful career, both within IFAD, FAO, and in the external public and private sectors. Perin joined IFAD in 1998 as a Country Portfolio Manager in what was then the Africa I division, going on to become a Country Program Manager and then a Loans Officer in the Office of the Controller. In 2007, he returned to Africa I (which later became WCA) as a Portfolio Advisor, before becoming the Director of ESA in 2012. Prior to joining IFAD, Perin’s extensive experience included serving as the Director General of the Ministry of Agriculture in his home country of Seychelles, as well as an Agricultural Economist at the FAO Investment Centre, carrying out various assignments as an Economist and Natural Resource Management and Agricultural Specialist.

IFAD's President said, as he announced the appointment of Perin St.Ange: “I know I speak for all of my EMC colleagues and the staff of OPV when I say how fortunate we are to have a person with such an extensive, broad, and relevant background join us for the final years of my term. The coming years will be both exciting and challenging, and Perin will be an important asset in helping all of us at IFAD make those years successful, for the ultimate benefit of the rural poor we all serve. Perin also leaves an important legacy in ESA that we must preserve, and we will immediately begin to seek a replacement for him. Although we would normally advertise director-level positions externally, this time we will focus our vacancy advertisement first on internal candidates, given the very strong pool of potential applicants. Please join me in welcoming Perin to his new position, and please offer him the support and collaboration he will need to help all of us become even more productive and effective."

Minister Alain St.Ange said that his brother, Perin, has done not only the St.Ange family proud, but he has also done Seychelles proud. “Our dear father, Karl St.Ange, would have been so proud. You were the one to follow in his footsteps in the field of agriculture, and you have done him proud," said Alain St.Ange.

Karl St.Ange grew up on the island of La Digue where he became a very successful farmer before joining politics. He became Vice President of the Seychelles People's United Party (SPUP) working to push for the independence of Seychelles from Great Britain. Karl St.Ange was elected to the Governing Council and Legislative Council of Seychelles when the islands were still a British colony, and after independence became Minister for Agriculture and later Minister for Health during the Seychelles 2nd Republic.
