The Managing Director of Ghana Post Company Limited, Mr. James Kwofie, has been awarded for his outstanding contributions to the development of postal services in Ghana.
He was awarded at the Ghana Development Awards ceremony held on Saturday, September 12, 2020 in Accra at the Accra Mariot Hotel to recognise outstanding contributions of individuals and institutions towards the development of Ghana’s economy.
Mr. Kwofie is being recognised for the massive transformation he has brought into the operations of Ghana Post including; technology enhancement in the delivery of mails and parcels underpinned by the digital address system. Ghana Post has improved fleet capacity, established a modern customer care centre to track and trace deliveries, e-commerce website, e-service, digital payment platform and enhanced financial services.
Since assuming office in 2017, Mr. Kwofie relentlessly led a team of result-oriented management to propel Ghana Post to an enviable feat. Ghana Post today uses performance management to continuously improve productivity of the company.
Commenting on the award, Mr Kwofie said: “I could not have come this far without the support of H. E. the President of the Republic of Ghana, my sector Minister Hon. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the Board of Directors of Ghana Post, Management of Ghana Post and our stakeholders and partners.” He dedicated the award to Ghana Post staff across the regions who bought into the new vision.
He continued that business partnership with other stakeholders culminated to his recognition as having contributed to the development of the postal service in the country.
According to the MD, the future of Ghana Post is anchored in its ability to churn out new innovations to meet customer expectations. He therefore called on government to continue supporting Ghana Post and give a quota of government delivery business to the company as a support to help the company to efficiently meet its obligations as the nation’s designated postal operator.
He expects the company to weather the challenges created by Covid-19 over the next 12 months with government support. He thanked the organisers of the awards for the award and encouraged them to keep up the good work.
