The internationally acclaimed chartered accountant and business advisory firm PKF has officially opened its newest state-of-the-art office facility at Daban New Site in Kumasi, as it begins the 2021 year with a commitment to continue pursuing excellence in its operations.
The Resident Manager of PKF Kumasi, Ms. Aisha Tiwaa Gyasi, said the path to success for the firm – which has been in practice in Kumasi for about 60 years of its 70-year existence in the country – has not always been pleasant.
However, she observed that despite the challenging times encountered, the firm is reaching greater heights. “As old as 71 years, PKF Ghana can be said to have gone through what is termed the theory of product life cycle, which includes growth maturity, saturation and decline.”
With new strategies being adopted, Ms. Gyasi said PKF is on the rise again – adding that they are resolved to be excellent in everything the firm offers.
She further called for continuous support from stakeholders to help the firm fulfil its quest for excellence.
Ms. Gyasi, who was speaking at a short but colourful ceremony to open the new Kumasi office building, noted among other things that construction and commissioning the office building marks a milestone for their operations in the Ashanti Region.
PKF Ghana is a member of PKF International Limited and has played a pivotal role in helping to establish the Institute of Chartered Accountants Ghana (ICAG). PKF has trained many Accountants, chartered and yet to charter, who are playing very significant roles in many businesses in Ghana and elsewhere.
PKF International has a global network that reaches into over 150 countries, serviced by over 480 offices.
The new ultra-modern office building was designed and constructed by FRAMAC Construction and Engineering Limited in 8-month duration. It is made up of offices, conference facility, registry, reception, among others.
The Managing Partner of PKF Ghana, Mrs. Nana Abena Adu-Gyamfi, noted that particularly given the rich history and culture of the region, PKF Ghana is delighted to have its own office facility in Kumasi.
She said PKF is poised to challenge the marketplace, and “with our high quality of work and the relationship we have with our clients, we believe that we will be able to achieve this and far more”.
While appreciating the partnership with FRAMAC Construction and Engineering that led to the construction of the new office building, she stated the facility “testifies to the new breath that is coming into PKF”.
Mrs. Adu-Gyamfi is optimistic that given time PKF will become a household name with every business across the country.
The Akyempimhene, Oheneba Adusei Poku, was the special guest of honour at the ceremony to commission the new office building.
