Emmanuel Adekahlor has been appointed as Country Managing Partner of EY Africa’s Ghana practice, effective July 1, 2023.
The EY Africa executive and leadership team are thrilled that Emmanuel will take on this new job, and his fellow Partners are enthusiastic about it. Emmanuel is the new EY CEO in place of Ferdinand Gunn, who retired on June 30.
Emmanuel joined EY in 2006 and is now an Assurance Partner with considerable expertise serving customers in a variety of industries, including financial services, telecommunications, consumer products, and GPS.
He has over 17 years of experience gained from working in three EY offices (Ghana, the United Kingdom, and South Africa) and plays important roles in regulatory and stakeholder engagements, including representing the firm in the Regulatory Forum and managing our relationships with the Institute of Chartered Accountants Ghana and the Central Bank of Ghana.
EY Africa CEO Ajen Sita “I’d like to congratulate Emmanuel and welcome him our leadership. I know that he will grow our practice in Ghana and provide strong continuity to our business. He has experience with our leadership team and is a dynamic, adaptable, and resilient leader with a passion for driving growth. As we continue to expand our market presence and drive innovation in West Africa, we are confident that Emmanuel will play a key role in these initiatives and provide strong support to our clients and people in that practice. I’d also like to take this opportunity to extend thanks and appreciation to retiring Country Managing Partner, Ferdinand Gunn, who led the business in Ghana from 2007.
Emmanuel Adekahlor: “Being appointed as the CMP for EY Ghana is humbling; and it’s an incredible opportunity to lead the organization here in Ghana and make a positive impact on the lives of our employees and clients. I am grateful for this opportunity and look forward to the coming weeks as we reach out to our clients and the broader market.”
