The former Chief Executive Officer of Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) during Compact 1, Martin Eson-Benjamin, will act as Interim CEO with effect from December 5, 2017, until a new CEO is appointed.
This is after the Authority, and the immediate past CEO, Ing. Owura K Sarfo, have agreed to a mutual separation.
Mr Eson-Benjamin brings a unique set of skills and expertise to MiDA having successfully implemented Compact 1 within the five year period from 2007 to 2012.
He also ensured that over 95 percent of the grant funds were disbursed on project investments in Ghana.
The former CEO achieved this feat on the back of a great track record in the private sector, having previously performed Executive roles at Unilever Ghana and the Ghana Breweries Limited.
MiDA says it looks forward to continuing to work with its various stakeholders to deliver the Compact for the people of Ghana with a new CEO at the helm.
