E. Veronica Harris, a Jamaican native, is a founding director of Xsomo International Limited. Currently residing in Florida, Mrs. Harris left the island many years ago, with her husband Eugene and her two youngest children Catherine and Michael, in support of her husband's progressive career with NCR (National Cash Register). This journey took them to Toronto, Canada, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and finally to Dayton, Ohio (in the United States) where the family was living when Eugene passed away. This significant loss brought her immediate and extended family closer together, eventually leading to her decision to move to Florida. Mrs. Harris, a very involved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, has always been actively engaged in the development and growth of Xsomo. In addition, she has provided leadership and direction to philanthropic organizations such as Hadassah and Jewish Women International, where her responsibilities ranged from committee chair to president.
