A Breath of Fresh Air – Kwesi Amoafo Yeboah

There are very few adjectives that adequately describe this man of many hats; an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, a father, a brother, a friend, an avid golfer, a pioneer and a leader on many fronts all serve to best describe Kwesi Amoafo – Yeboah as a breath of fresh air…

His versatility and substance was recognized by His Excellency John Mahama leading to an appointment in 2013 to Chair the Board of Trustees of the Venture Capital Trust Fund (VCTF). 

VCTF was created by the Government of Ghana to develop the venture capital industry in Ghana and to partner with privately owned venture capital finance companies to leverage government funds in support of the development of the private sector with the ultimate aim of creating more jobs.

As an indication of the innovative thought process possessed by Kwesi, he broke the standard when he stood as an independent candidate for the presidency of Ghana in 2008.

An engineer by profession, he holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and Petro physics from San Francisco State University in California.

His career begun in the oil industry as a Field Engineer with Schlumberger Well Services in California and later as a District Sales Manager / Log Analyst for Gerhardt Industries (now part of Halliburton Oilfield Services).

Ironically, this humble and unassuming man is addicted to golf, having been introduced to the game at the age of 7. He currently plays off a 14 Handicap, but woe betide anyone who dares bet against him, for as he has done all his life, you underestimate him at your peril.
