Just learnt of this.
Sir Dwight Verner was the Governor of Eastern Carribean Central Bank from 1989 t0 2015. The implies a 26 years tenure, one of the longest tenure in the world.
which is the longest tenure for a central bank chief in the world. He just passed away on 23 Dec 2016.
Thy year end also saw the demise of Hans Tietmeyer, the former chief of Bundesbank (1993-99). He played an instrumental role in transition of European countries towards Euro.
The post is not correct as pointed by one of the vistors to this blog – Mr. G Sreekumar. He points Mr. Erik Hoffmeyer of Denmark central bank having the longest tenure of 30 years. I just checked and this seems to be correct. Thus, have made changed in both the title and content of the post. So much so for central bank history.
