Moen McDoom appointed Honorary Consul of Spain to Guyana


Attorney-at-law Moen McDoom Jr. was on Wednesday installed as the Honorary Consul of Spain to Guyana, succeeding local businessman Brian Tiwari who held the position for 10 years.

The handing over was overseen by the Non-resident Ambassador of Spain to Guyana, Fernando Nogales Alvarez during a simple ceremony at the residence of the European Union (EU) Ambassador in Georgetown.

“Brian has been an extremely generous and dedicated Honorary Consul. There are a number of things that we have been doing in these 10 years that would not have been possible even to think about being done without having Brian here,” Alvarez said.

In 2018, Tiwari was awarded the Officer’s Cross of the Order of Civil Merit, one of the highest national awards from the Kingdom of Spain. It was the first time a Guyanese was honoured with a national award of a foreign country on local soil.

McDoom, a practicing attorney, graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from The University of the West Indies in 1997 and thereafter from the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad in 1999.

He specializes in corporate, commercial, and civil litigation, including bank foreclosures.
