LOUIS CRISHOCK INTRODUCED TO GRENADA

St. George -- The United States will have a new Charge D'Affaires heading its mission here in the person of Louis Crishock.

 

A member of the U.S Foreign Service since 1999, Crishock has defined his first priority as  to learn as much as he can about Grenada as possible and to work with the American citizen population  here to ensure their safety.  He will continue to further U.S initiatives  such as the Caribbean Basin Initiative, fighting the scourge of HIV/AIDS, and promoting youth employment through USAID.

 

Crishock most recently served as acting Director of the Eurasia Division of the Office of the Coordinator of U.S Assistance to Europe, Eurasia and Central Asia and has also been assigned in countries such as  Belarus, Ukraine, Belgrade, Bosnia, Kosovo, Yugoslavia and Herzegovina.

 

He has received the State Department's Superior Honour Award three times, most recently for Service as Acting Deputy Chief of Mission in Minsk, Belarus in 2008.

 

Crishock hails from Arlington County, Virginia and speaks Russian, Serbo-Croatian and some Ukrainian.

 

Bernard Link, who has headed the Grenada Mission over the last three years leaves to take up his new assignment in Afghanistan on November 7.
