Basil Ottley Jr. was born in Puerto Rico on November 25, 1966 to Basil Ottley Sr. and Josephine Schulterbrandt Ottley.
There were times when Basil resented not going to the same schools as his Savan neighborhood friends and cousins, but he appreciates the friends he made and the lessons he learned.
This proud Virgin Islander learned that there are great divides between people in the Virgin Islands.But, he also learned that no matter our station in life, no matter our race or place of birth, and no matter our gender or age; we are all made of the same stuff, all struggle with the same questions, and we will all meet the same end.
Along with his parents, Basil's grandfather, the late Ernest Schulterbrandt; his uncle, the late Earle B. Ottley; the late William D. Roebuck; and Nab Eddie Bobo, were his mentors and the shapers of the principled and thinking man that he is today.They indoctrinated him with spiritual and nationalistic values and provided him with great insights into the Virgin Islands social, economic, and political evolution.Basil's mentors encouraged him to obtain the best formal training he could acquire because they knew that the challenges of the 21st Century would require leaders and decision makers that had the intelligence and the global perspective to equally match the power brokers from the federal government, other nations, and corporate entities like HOVENSA, Innovative, and Cruzan Rum.
Basil has sought to balance intellectual and professional pursuits with community service.He is currently a member of the University of the Virgin Islands Advisory Committee for the 5th Constitutional Convention, a member of the African Diaspora Youth Development Foundation, a former Chairman of the WTJX Board of Directors, and a former member of the St. Thomas/St.John Youth Multi-service Center Board.
Basil was also a researcher and feature writer for both Pride Magazine and the Street Speaker for a span of ten years.
Basil later earned a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from the University of the Virgin Islands to acquire the analytical discipline so that he would be prepared to master complex issues like tax policy and pension fund actuarial valuations.He subsequently worked as a research analyst in the survey research unit of the Eastern Caribbean Center at UVI before leaving to continue his graduate studies at Duke University in 1998.While at the ECC, he worked on the 1995 Population and Housing Survey, the 1997 Consumer Expenditure Survey, and the first VI Statistical Yearbook.
Basil earned a Master of Public Policy, with a concentration in international development, from Duke University in 2000.He gained diverse competencies in various disciplines -- such as economics, public management, governance, and program evaluation -- that prepared him to offer informed insights into such issues as the development of a constitution, political status options, economic development, and education reform.
After graduate school, Basil went to work for one of the most respected and successful privately owned information technology consulting firms in the USA to prove himself among the best and brightest in corporate America.SRA International recruited Basil to enter a management track that would groom him to become an officer in the company.He was entrusted with managing the program operations and compliance requirements for a portfolio of federal projects valued at over $300 million.
In 2003, Basil returned home to support his aging father and to contribute to the Virgin Islands development.He has served as Senator Louis Patrick Hill's chief of staff since 2003.
