The Volta River Authority (VRA) has received two key awards at the maiden Nobel International Business School (NiBS) Ghana Innovation Awards (NiBS GIA).
Dubbed "the Ultimate Industry Award", the awards night, held at Kempinski Gold Coast City Hotel, Accra, saw the Volta River Authority's (VRA) indefatigable Chief Executive, Mr. Emmanuel Antwi-Darkwa, being adjudged "Best Public Sector Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Year".
That aside, VRA beat other key public sector organisations to win the "Ghana Outstanding Company Innovator (OCI) Award".
The awards largely are in recognition of the innovative measures rolled out by the Chief Executive through the corporate strategy, "BRAISE", which has the key objective of ensuring a turnaround of the Authority’s finances and ultimately drive our journey into a resilient and financially sustainable "NEW VRA".
The Deputy Chief Executive (Finance), Mr. Ebenezer Tagoe, received the awards on behalf of the Authority and the Chief Executive.
Present to grace the occasion were Director HR, Dr. (Mrs.) Irene Stella Agyenim-Boateng; Director Investment, Mr. Richard Ahenkora Osei; Manager, Administration & Travels, Mrs. Tandy Chothia; Accra/Tema HR Manager, Mrs. Jayne Kumi; Principal Job Analyst, Mr. Dominic Ofosuhene; as well as Messers Eric Paatey, Micheal Danso and Mr. Samuel deGraft-Johnson from the Corporate Strategy Department.
