The Managing Director of Ghana Re, Mr. George Yaw Mensah traced the Company’s history back to October 1, 1972 when it first started as a department within State Insurance Corporation (now SIC Company of Ghana) through to date where, in a bid to bring Ghana Re’s business operations closer to the doorstep of our business partners, has re-strategized its Africanization agenda leading to the set-up of regional offices in Kenya, Cameroon and recently Morocco.
He used the opportunity to outline Ghana Re’s achievements over the years, particularly the Company’s continued profitability and contribution to the socio-economic development of the country through payment of dividends to its sole shareholder, the Government of Ghana.
Additionally, he pointed out Ghana Re’s immense contribution to the growth and development of expertise in re/insurance and related fields for professionals in the insurance industry both in Ghana and across Africa.
He disclosed that Management under the direction of the Board is implementing strategies to further strengthen business operations to make Ghana Re even more relevant as an African reinsurer of choice and to put the Company on a higher business pedestal.
In his closing remarks, the Managing Director thanked the former Managing Directors, past and present Board Directors and staff, business partners, (local and international) and the shareholder for their continued support.
