Jennifer Lester is Director of Corporate Services and Facilities at the IMF

International Monetary Fund (IMF) appointed UWI alumna Ms. Jennifer Lester as Director of Corporate Services on February 18, 2020. She received her Juris Doctor degree from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C., and holds a Master of Science degree in International Relations and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Modern Languages from The UWI.

Ms. Lester is currently acting Director of the Fund’s Corporate Services and Facilities Department. Ms. Lester is the first Jamaican and she believes the first Caribbean national to have reached this level at the IMF and importantly, the first UWI graduate to do so!

Before joining the IMF in 1997, she was a legal officer at the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization, and previously practiced corporate law, international trade law and litigation as an associate in private practice with the Washington, D.C. office of Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen and Hamilton. She is a former career foreign-service officer with the Jamaican Foreign Service and served at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kingston and as Minister Counsellor in the Jamaican Embassy in Washington from 1985-1991.
