Governor Albert Bryan Jr.

Albert Bryan Jr. is the ninth-elected governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands. He is an entrepreneur, non-profit executive, and tireless and compassionate advocate for the economic and political advancement of the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands.

During his first term as governor, Bryan, a former commissioner of the Virgin Islands Department of Labor and Chairman of the Virgin Islands Economic Development Authority Board, is boldly leading the U.S. Virgin Islands through unprecedented economic growth and infrastructure expansion.
