Under special circumstances, this year’s Ashanti Business Excellence Awards, Ashanti Financial Services Excellence Awards and Ashanti Business Leaders Excellence Awards Ceremonies have been scheduled to be organized simultaneously on Friday 3rd May 2024 at the Lancaster Kumasi City Hotel.

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of both the Ashanti Business Excellence Awards and the Ashanti Financial Services Excellence Awards as well as the 10th edition of the Ashanti Business Leaders Excellence Awards which are all organised by Top Brass Ghana.

According to Mr. Isaac Dakwa, Director of Top Brass Ghana, it has been decided to organise a joint Awards Dinner for all the three Awards Schemes in commemoration of the Silver Jubilee of Otumfuo the Asantehene in recognition of His Royal Majesty’s pivotal role in the social and economic development of Asanteman during his 25 years of inspirational and progressive reign.

The Ashanti Business and Financial Services Excellence Awards Schemes were instituted in 2004 within the context of the vision of Otumfuo for the economic development of Ashanti and of Ghana for that matter.

The Ashanti Business Excellence Awards Scheme was introduced in 2015.

Mr. Dakwa stated that all the three Awards Schemes have the common objective of honouring corporate entities as well as captain of business, industry and finance whose products and services have made a remarkably positive impact on Ashanti’s economic development.

A High Representative of Otumfuo will grace the occasion which will have Hon. Simon Osei Mensah, Ashanti Regional Minister, as the distinguished Guest of Honour with Prof. Gabriel Dwomo, the recently installed Vice-Chancellor of the Kumasi Technical University serving as the Chairman.
