The Secretariat of the Guyana Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo announced the appointment of Fareeza Haniff as its new Media and Operations Director and Kiana Wilburg as the new Chief Executive Officer. The organization said the two women are poised to lead the Secretariat into a new era of growth and influence.

Haniff is a career journalist who joined the media in Guyana as a reporter in 2006. She has ascended to leadership duties within various media outlets in and out of Guyana. Fareeza has also served in various capacities at the Executive level of the Guyana Press Association (GPA) from 2014 to 2020.  

“Her strategic thinking and dedication to excellence will undoubtedly elevate the Secretariat’s outreach efforts and operational efficiency. She also has experience leading and managing diverse teams through her effective leadership skills,” the Secretariat said. 

Wilburg assumes the role of Chief Executive Officer with a track record of energy sector knowledge.  Kiana embarked on her career in journalism in January 2013, with key focus on politics, finance, parliamentary affairs, and agriculture. 

With oil and gas discovered in 2015, Wilburg pivoted and has since been at the forefront of investigating, analyzing, and documenting the industry over the last nine years. 

“Her balanced, professional approach, combined with a deep-seated enthusiasm for the energy sector, underscore her commitment to contributing meaningfully to the ongoing narrative of Guyana’s oil and gas industry,” the Secretariat said.

The Conference said its ambition is to serve as a leading thinktank on issues that shape the growth and sustainability of Guyana’s economy. 

Outgoing CEO, Kurt Baboolall will transition to lead other projects within the GO Integrated Group of Companies.
