“No institution or individual in Haiti escaped unscathed by the tragic events of last January 12th. We, at Citi, were no exception, having lost five of our dear employees, an unwarranted tragedy that has deeply saddened all of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families, their friends and their acquaintances to whom we extend our heartfelt condolences,” said Gladys Coupet , Citi Country Corporate Officer in Haiti. “At times like this, we treasure more than ever the support expressed in multiple different ways by our community and our customers, who have continuously shown interest in the status of our personnel. For this we are extremely grateful. As the country begins the long road towards recovery, we are very appreciative of the disposition and energy of all our personnel which has been critical to allowing us to resume operations and provide state-of-the-art services to our corporate customers. To them we would like to underscore that our unwavering commitment to Haiti, espoused since the first day we started operations in Port au Prince in 1971, is today stronger than ever.”
