Mr. Allen is an attorney and partner in the law firm of Higgs & Johnson.

He is the chairperson of the Higgs & Johnson aviation practice group and is the author of The Bahamas chapter in Aircraft Finance: Regulation Security and Enforcement.

Rev. Rolle is the Pastor of Salem Union Baptist Church, and the founder of Sky Unlimited Charter Company, which began service with one Piper Aztec five passenger aircraft, and expanded into a fleet of Cessna C402 aircraft, and which introduced to The Bahamas the first turbo prop aircraft

Minister Hanna Martin added she is extremely gratified that this distinguished team of professional Bahamian trailblazers has agreed to be appointed to the very first

Board of the Bahamas Civil Aviation Authority, and she is confident that they will serve with distinction, in ensuring the necessary regulatory oversight of the aviation sector, and the continued development of air navigation services in the country.
