- Kwaku Dawereso BoatengPresident
Kwaku Dawereso Boateng who aspires to be trained and useful to the socio-economic development of Africa is a team player with strong interpersonal, communication and analytical with strong passion to restore and preserve our ecosystem and the ocean that surrounds planet Earth.
The environmentalist is a proactive, assertive, energetic and capable of handling multiple assignments with long working hours. He is always dedicated to his goals, generous, respectful and performance driven with a keen desire to achieving results from a high standard of professional integrity and honesty.
The ardent and astute researcher who until 2019 was the CEO of IWS Limited (a community mining entity), until working for the Ghana Education Service as a District Budget Officer for Kwahu Afram Plains South, was a Cost and Financial Accounting teacher at the Mpraeso Senior High School in the Eastern Region between 2011 and 2014.
As a former church treasurer of Bethesda Baptist Church, Ejisu in the Ashanti region, Boateng is a Christian who worships with the Church of Pentecost since 2015.
Kwaku Boateng, who is philanthropist and a self-motivator who is a proud holder of other academic and professional qualifications, holds Master of Science (MSc) in Local Government Financial Management from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Boateng who is an astute naturalist and the now politically neutral before the year 2019 dabbled in politics and has had him elected twice for political office. In the 2015 District Assembly elections, he was elected as the Assemblyman for Nyinamponase Electoral Area at the Asante Akim North District Assembly deposing the popular one-term incumbent who was seeking for the second term of office.
As a second year student of the then Kumasi Polytechnic in 2002, he was elected as a Publicity Officer for the Association of Polytechnics HND Accountancy Students – APHAS.
His work as a community miner at IWS shaped his conviction to give it all and devote all his time and resources to help found the Environmental and Mining Policy Institute (EMPI) Ghana to fight for these environmental injustices that has engulfed our part of the world. To him, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reneged on its mandate to protect our ecosystem and has woefully failed the taxpayer through which it is funded.
He previously worked with a number of entities including, Odotobri Rural Bank Ltd as a credits officer, Juaben Rural Bank Ltd as the micro finance officer and the Ministry of Defence on National Service.
For all his professional experiences aside the IWS, it is his one year brief spell at the Ghana Armed Forces Pay Office at Burma Camp which saw him writing cheques for payment of suppliers and the preparation of bank reconciliation statement among many other tasks that had a big impact on his life.
