Ashesi President, Patrick Awuah, has been selected as one of the top ten most respected CEOs in Ghana. The ranking of Chief Executive Officers for 2009 involved surveys of 208 CEOs and was organized by PricewaterhouseCoopers and The Business and Financial Times. The ranking is conducted every two years to identify individuals and companies who are recognized by their peers as engendering good corporate practice. PricewaterhouseCoopers (Ghana) Limited in collaboration with Business & Financial Times commissioned a survey to identify and select Ghana’s Most Respected Companies and CEOs. Ghana’s Business Leaders were asked: “Which 3 Companies and 3 CEOs in Ghana they most respect and why?”.

This is the first time the head of a nonprofit or educational institution has been selected among the top ten. It is a strong vote of confidence from corporate Ghana for the work we are doing at Ashesi, and a great honour.
