Metry Seaga is the President of the Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association, elected unopposed on June 24th, 2015.
He served on the JMA’s Board of Directors since 2008, and has helped 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 has taken the reigns in 2015, the most noteworthy has been the launch of JMA’s newest initiative, the Jamaica International Exhibition (JIE) tradeshow, a first in terms of its size and 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 Rent-A-Car business, a Travel Agency, entered into motor vehicle sales and finally established a manufacturing business. Having been a manufacturer from the age of 16, Mr. Seaga is today the Managing Director of Jamaica Fiberglass 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 takes pleasure in playing golf.
