Profile of Kwadwo Adjei-Barwuah

Kwadwo Adjei-BarwuahKwadwo Adjei-Barwuah earned a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction in Economics with a minor in Management from McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He served as a Financial Consultant with Investors Group of Canada, providing investment and related advisory services to businesses and individuals before returning to Ghana in 2004.

Kwadwo was an Analyst for Banking Supervision Department of the Bank of Ghana, where he also served as Head of Information Systems and initiated research into electronic banking supervision. Mr. Adjei-Barwuah recently accepted a position as a Senior Analyst with Activity Venture Capital Finance Company, a major player in the emerging venture capital industry.

While taking a Labour Economics course at McGill, Kwadwo’ s attention was drawn to the plight of the pensioner, and he began to keenly follow pension reform in Ghana. However, in the course of working in Ghana over the past several years, his concern for the financial health of retirees has been eclipsed by consternation at their physical health.

A recently converted runner himself, Kwadwo first became acquainted with The Project when he decided to participate in the Accra International Marathon. Realizing that he and The Project shared the goal of addressing the dismally low Ghanaian life expectancy, he became a volunteer and subsequently accepted an invitation to join the Board of Directors.

Kwadwo’s concern for his fellow citizens is not limited to pensioners and retirees; he is a founding member of International Child Empowerment Network, a Not-for-Profit-Organization with the goal of unleashing the talent and potential of Ghanaian children through after-school activities and camps.
