Metry Seaga is the President of the Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association and served on the JMA’s Board of Directors since 2008. He has helped to shape and implement many of the organization’s initiatives, fearlessly tackling issues impeding the industry, and promoting the manufacturing sector as the engine of economic growth. Though there have been many accomplishments since Mr. Seaga’s election as head, the most noteworthy has been the launch of JMA’s newest initiative, the Jamaica International Exhibition (JIE) tradeshow, a first in terms of its magnitude, held in June 2017.
Mr. Seaga has been an entrepreneur for over twenty-seven years. After obtaining his Bachelor’s Degree in Business at the Florida International University (FIU) in 1984, he returned to Jamaica where he started a car rental business, a travel agency, entered into motor vehicle sales and later established a manufacturing business. Having been a manufacturer from the age of 16, Mr. Seaga is today the Managing Director of Jamaica Fibreglass Products Ltd., a contract fabricating company.
In addition to being head of the JMA, he is the Vice Chairman of JAMPRO, and was the youngest elected President of the Jamaica U-Drive Association.
In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf.
