I served as the CEO of OctaneDC – a firm that provided fund management services to individuals, institutions, pension funds, and collective investment schemes for the past three years. By January 2023, I have transited into an Independent Financial Consultant role supporting wealth management advisory needs of individuals, families, groups and institutions. Close to two decades of practice in the finance and investment space, I am recognized as one of the leaders making significant contributions to the savings, investment and wealth creation & management conversation within the Investment industry in Ghana.
Through the Boardroom Africa (TBR), I served as a Board apprentice with the https://africanvisionary.org/who-we-are (African Visionary Fund), a philanthropic organization headquartered in the USA for 12months. Presently, I have been confirmed as a Board member and aligned with three committees of the Board. I serve in the capacity of Board Treasurer, Chair – Finance Committee and member of the Grantmaking committee. By association with AVF, I received Board training from the Issroff Family Foundation in June 2022, with focus on Board Structure, Culture, Finance, and CEO-Chair relationships, among many relevant skill sets. In 2023, AVF nominated me to the https://roddenberryfoundation.org/ (The Roddenberry Foundation) to help shortlist women led interventions across Africa for grant from their +1globalfund.
At present, I Chair the Board of Pesewa1 Plc. – a business service provider for SMEs in Africa, listed on the Ghana Alternative Market of the Ghana Stock Exchange. In addition, I currently serve as the Board Chair of, the Investment Committee of the Cocobod Pensions and Provident Funds schemes. Two schemes I sit on as the Independent Board Trustee for the past 12 years. Also, for the past 12 years, I have functioned in the same capacity as Independent Board Trustee of Nestle Ghana and CWA Pension and Provident Funds schemes.

For the greater part, my professional life has been dedicated to investment banking and fund management. With special interest in Wealth Management, I have led many wealth management, finance, and administrative teams to manage funds worth over $80million. In recent months, I have directed my interest into Family Office services. Where I am focusing on family and generational wealth creation and management through the setup of Trusts, Endowment Funds and Family Offices. My passion to share knowledge through writing and speaking has earned me numerous invitations as a guest speaker at several corporate events as well as to media organizations.
For the past years, I have been a regular speaker on the ShEquity Business Accelerator platform https://vc4a.com/shequity/sheba-2023/#: and the ‘All Moms’ Business & Finance Academy. Likewise, I served on the grant-making committee of the AVF for their third cohort in 2023. For Athena SBG Finance, I joined a pool of speakers to speak on relevant skill set areas for women leaders in business. All these interventions geared towards the support of women entrepreneurs in Ghana and Africa. As a Toastmaster at heart, I aim to be an accomplished public speaker and provide business, team, and board leads having built effective leadership skills through experience, practice and networking.
