Dr Anyah named Ghana’s most respected CEO
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Holy Trinity Group, Dr. Felix Anyah, has been adjudged ‘Ghana’s Most Respected CEO’ in the health sector.
The immediate-past acting CEO of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, received the coveted award on Friday, December 7, 2018, at the Marriott Hotel in Accra during the Ghana Industry CEO Awards.
Dr. Anyah was pitched against other top CEOs in Ghana’s health sector namely, Dr. Dan Vincent Armoah of Acacia Health Insurance; Samuel Among Tobbin of Tobinco Pharmaceutical; Daniel Kissi of Aryton Drugs; Kofi Nsia-Poku of Kinapharma; Dr. Marcus Mann of the Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, among others.
Dr. Anyah’s hardwork, discipline and value-based leadership in the health industry over the years made him stand tall among his peers, hence the award.
Speaking at the ceremony, Event Director at The Business Executive (TBE), organizers of the awards, Hannah Ackah, indicated that the 2018 Ghana Industry CEO Awards, recognize the most respected chief executives by the general public.
The 19 sectors for the awards were insurance, banking, real estate, construction, media and advertising, agriculture, mining, transportation, non bank financial institutions, arts and entertainment, manufacturing, health, education, telecom, hospitality and tourism, retail sector, professional services, and oil and gas.
In his acceptance remarks, Dr. Anyah said: “I am so pleased that we have emphasized the role of respect, not money,” adding that “we will build this country on principality and respect and not money.”
According to him, the award and others he has received this year and over the years meant that decisions and actions he took during his 40-year career were right.
Nana Baafuor Osei Hyeaman Brantuo VI, Manwerehene of Otumfuo, the Asante King, prayed for the younger generation of Ghanaians to have role models who would not make money the focus of their engagements and dealings with society but sound values and norms of the Ghanaian and African society.
About Dr. Anyah
Dr. Anyah had grown up with the passion of becoming a professional lawyer but veered off into becoming a medical doctor after he had survived a severe pneumonia.
As a member of Ghana Medical and Dental Council, a statutory body for the regulation of medical practice in Ghana in 2003, Dr. Anyah researched, published and advocated professionally ethical advertising for medical practitioners.
That helped to positively change the early conservative position of the council against professional advertising by doctors in Ghana.
He went on to win a historic case in medical jurisprudence against the Ghanaian government on the payment of Value Added Tax (VAT) by his novel Health SPA.
He has over the years remained a role model for young doctors when it comes to ethics, business and success in medical practice.
