Chamber For Tourism Ghana Appoints Angela Akua Asante As New COO
Chamber for Tourism Industry Ghana (CTI Ghana) is pleased to advise that after an extensive executive search, Angela Akua Asante has been appointed to the new position of Chief Operating Officer. This position is key to continuing to improve ICANN’s operational effectiveness.
As the second-in-command at CTI Ghana after CEO Prince Ntiamoah Boampong, COO Angela Akua Asante will be responsible for running the Chamber’s projects, communications, social media content and campaigns, managing partnerships, and hosting conferences accommodating both Francophones and Anglophones.
Known as “Triple A” due to her initials, the young Ghanaian entrepreneur who is also the founder of audiovisual content company TITA Productions brings in 12 years of experience in online brand management, and mentorship thanks to her record as the Head of Digital Content and Social Media at America’s biggest soccer broadcast listings portal, Live Soccer TV.
The coverage of four World Cups in the last seven years pre-COVID-19 across men’s, women’s and youth tournaments — namely the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan, the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada, the 2018 FIFA Men’s World Cup in Russia, and the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France — feature on Ms. Asante’s impressive profile.
In addition, AAA’s 5-year spell as BBC Afrique’s only French speaking Ghana-based correspondent for the “Multisports” show, as well as her presence on major French-speaking media platforms such as Radio France Internationale, offer CTI Ghana the weight it needs to establish contact and collaborate with Ghana’s Francophone neighbors and French institutions.
Beyond her background in the realms of media, sports, and events which the Ghanaian tourism sector aims to tap into, Angela possesses a network in agribusiness and trade through her affiliation with award-winning export company Organic Trade & Investments.
