Glidden will take up the job on 1 October following the resignation of the current boss, Charles Ilako, who leaves at the end of this month.

She will be working closely with Sharon Braithwaite, deputy in the management of the division.

Although Glidden’s new role is as acting head and therefore temporary, CIMA said it was pleased to be able to fill the key position through promotion from within the authority.

Glidden was described by officials as having the qualifications and experience required and “more than capable” of leading the division successfully. She joined CIMA four years ago as deputy head of the investments and securities division, overseeing the licensing, regulation and supervision of mutual funds, mutual fund administrators and entities conducting securities and investment business under the Securities Investment Business Law and the Mutual Funds Law, and sought to ensure their compliance under the Money Laundering Regulations and the Proceeds of Crime Law.

She has participated in international forums such as the US-Caribbean Public Private Dialogue on Correspondent Banking as well as other regulatory and industry seminars, both locally and abroad.

Glidden is a Certified Public Accountant with 18 years post-qualification experience in finance and accounting spanning various industries such as auditing, utilities, telecommunications and financial services, with five and a half years in hedge fund administration. She has a degree in Accounting from the University of Miami and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Illinois CPA Society and the Cayman Islands Institute of Professional Accountants.
