Burrows is a Certified Public Accountant with more than 22 years of experience in public accounting, offshore insurance, bank & trust accounting, as well as operations & telecommunication finance and international business.

In a press release announcing the appointment, the board said it was delighted to appoint Burrows at an important time for BCSD.
