Mr Nartey described his predecessor as a man who was up to the task, maintaining a very calm but firm disposition, listening to everyone but careful about forming an opinion, careful to take action but certain in the decision.
“With the use of influence and not authority, Mr Akwaboah successfully navigated the ship to calm waters and has successfully steered the company on a course of stability and growth.
“I believe everyone at Team Engen will testify of Mr Akwaboah’s unflinching determination to empower his team and provide all the resources required to deliver.
“I am grateful to have been empowered by Mr Akwaboah. As the new Managing Director of Engen Ghana, now a subsidiary of Mocoh Ghana, I commit to building on the foundation laid and delivering to our shareholder’s expectations for the company. I have set out a new vision to make Engen Ghana the desired petroleum marketing company in Ghana.
“We will be the company consumers want to buy from, the OMC that sets the performance benchmarks in the industry, a company our regulators would be
proud of, a brand that all stakeholders want to associate with and an employer of choice.
“We will do this within a culture that is entrepreneurial, innovative, and service-oriented. I have inherited a team that is capable, competent, empowered, and motivated and together we will make this happen,” Mr Nartey stated.
