Three “illustrious Bermudians” who have made significant contributions in their fields took their place among a special Bermuda College group at a black-tie dinner tonight.
Andrew Banks, Peter Durhager and Wilbert Warner were inducted into the Company of Honorary Fellows of the college.
Mr Banks, the husband of former premier Dame Pamela Gordon Banks, is the co-founder of Boston-based equity firm ABRY Partners.
He is involved in a number of international charities which work in education and healthcare in the developing world.
Peter Durhager has had a career that has spanned banking, telecommunications, technology, insurance and the energy sector.
Mr Durhager co-led the Bermuda bid to host the 35th America’s Cup and has said he believed in “giving while living”.
He has helped communities through philanthropic organisations and social entrepreneurship.
His daughter Margaret accepted the induction on his behalf.
Dr Warner, an internal medicine specialist, started his medical career in Bermuda’s health department as the police and prisons medical officer.
He said the establishment of a multidisciplinary HIV clinic at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital in 1998, and the positive impact that has had on many lives since then, was one of his proudest achievements.
Duranda Greene, the college president, welcomed guests to the event at Paget’s Coco Reef Resort.
