Coming on the heels of a $20,000 sponsorship, the second largest of the CARIFTA Swimming Championships which was held in The Bahamas recently, CIBC FirstCaribbean leaders enjoyed the meet, cheered their team on and took time to celebrate with the swimming stars.

The bank’s Managing Director Marie Rodland-Allen attended the opening ceremony and several of the sessions. “At CIBC FirstCaribbean, we were proud to be associated with the elite swimmers of the Caribbean,” she said. “This was an excellent competition.

We were a significant part of a history-making event. 

We demonstrated in a big way that we support the communities in which we operate and we also got a chance to showcase our brand.

She continued, “Overall, the event was well-organized and anyone watching would have been proud to be associated with the meet, and CIBC FirstCaribbean’s support helped make it happen.”
