“Patrick Kwaku Ofori has been selected to replace him after a rigorous assessment and interview process and the Chamber believes that he has what it takes to lead this chamber to greater heights,” Board Chair of CBOD, Ivy Apea Owusu said in a statement.

The Chamber further expressed its immense gratitude to Senyo Hosi for being an excellent torchbearer and effective advocate for businesses in the downstream sector of Ghana’s petroleum industry.

“We cannot thank Senyo enough and we wish him the very best in all his future endeavours,” the statement added.

Meanwhile, the incoming CEO of the Chamber, Dr Patrick Kwaku Ofori will assume the position on August 1, 2022.

Dr. Kwaku Ofori is also the Founding Head of the Department of Sports Science at the University of Cape Coast.

Reacting to his appointment in a statement, Dr Kwaku Ofori noted, “I was strongly attracted to this role because CBOD is known nationally for its contribution in the downstream sector, as well as its relationship with stakeholders in the industry,”

“The foundations have been laid by my predecessor to create an excellent chamber. Together, we will leapfrog on this for continued effectiveness. I am aware that the CBOD community is interested in excellence, and so am I. We will work well to meet the expectations of our members and partners,” he added.
