Miss World announces new Guyana Franchise Holder

Natasha Martindale Natasha Martindale

The Miss World Pageant which is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious beauty contests has announced that New York based Guyanese business woman and Financial Analyst, Natasha Martindale has been awarded the Miss World Franchise for Guyana.

Ms. Matindale will now be tasked with organizing and hosting the Guyana leg of the international beauty event to find the best candidate to represent Guyana on the international stage.  

Miss World Limited which is based in London, England has thanked the previous Franchise Holder, Mr. Ken Chung for his years of service and has offered him best wishes.

The new Franchise Holder is already exploring a new Management committee for the Miss Guyana World Pageant which is expected to bring together a number of prominent Guyanese designers, business persons, public relations representatives and beauty consultants.

Natasha Martindale is no stranger to the world of pageantry in Guyana. Before migrating to the United States, she worked closely with a number of local pageants including Miss Bartica Regatta, Miss Queen of Queens and Miss African Heritage. She is the co founder of FACTS by Michelle Cole which is a fashion marketing and production company.

Natasha Martindale is a mother of one child and currently works as an Assistant Controller/ Financial Planning and Analysis for one of the largest financial reporting companies on Wall Street.

Though Guyana has been unable to capture the Miss World Crown, the country over the years has been able to grab the international spotlight with smart and beautiful representatives.

Ms. Martindale has indicated that she intends to continue along that trend and also put together a better programme for the preparation of the contestants and the eventual Queen. She is also promising to liaison more with the business community in Guyana and the tourism sector. She is confident that with their support and the support of all of Guyana, Miss Guyana World will continue to be one of the leading local beauty events.
