PathLight International is pleased to announce that D. Verne Sharma has joined the Board of Directors. After completing his MBA at Wharton, Mr. Sharma worked at the global management consulting firm of McKinsey & Company, then served in senior management positions at GE Medical Systems, US Surgical Corp, and Summit Technology. He recently retired from his role as CEO and Chairman of RxSight, Inc., based in Aliso Viejo, CA. Mr. Sharma was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago, where he met his wife, Aurora. They currently split their time between Trinidad and Miami.
“I am thrilled to be invited to join the PathLight Board,” said Verne. “My visit to Belize last year was a unique opportunity for me to see the organization’s work first hand, and I could not be more excited to join this outstanding effort to educate and uplift children and their local communities in Belize. I look forward to working with Roy, Roger, and the PathLight team to fulfill our mission of bringing the love of Christ to and having real impact on the lives of people."
Roy Goble, co-founder of PathLight and current Board Chair, said, “Having Verne join our small organization will help us think bigger and operate more wisely. His experience with large corporate organizations, along with his deep faith and understanding of the Caribbean culture, will provide the wisdom and experience we need to take PathLight to the next level. I’m honored he would join PathLight.”
Verne and Aurora attended Bel Air Presbyterian Church when they lived in Los Angeles, and they remember Roger Dermody as the Executive Pastor. Roger said, “It was great to reconnect with Verne when we visited Belize together last year. I look forward to working with him in our effort to bring hope to the children of Belize.”
