The Sekondi Takoradi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (STCCI), has appointed Mr. Vincent Annan, as the new Chief Executive Officer after its secession from the National Chamber.

His depth of knowledge in the area of business development and management of a Business Support Organisation (BSO), such as a Chamber of Commerce & Industry, could also be attributed to his extensive engagements with a lot of International Organisations, both locally and internationally.
