Gilbert N. M. O. Morris is a legal scholar, economist, government advisor, professor, author and publisher. In 2006, Morris purchased the Turks and Caicos Free Press. He set about turning the newspaper around, adding a permanent Editorial section and increasing its readership by almost 2500% and its revenues by over 1500%. The newspaper focused primarily on business, investment and international affairs, and was the primary source for commentary during the TCI Commission of Inquiry, which led to the fall of the Government of Michael Misick, in the Spring of 2009.
In 2010, Morris was joined by Mrs. Christa Reckhorn and together they drove the paper into another phase of development and success.
