OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM: 1 MAY 2014

Reaching out to our stakeholders by using this medium surely is a fade of the times. But it does not in itself translate into delivering the values and assurances that your business and resources entrusted to our organisation are in safe hands. We belief therefore that aligning modern technology with top management technical and professional competencies are the best combination for delivering value to the client. Key members of our management team are people with proven ability to build dedicated, enduring and trusted partnerships with you, their tools being: institutional and personal learning, collaboration, trust, inter and intra compliant corporate governance, safety, and quality assurance.

His experience spans over wide industry sectors. Starting a working career in the civil service as a Radio Announcer in October of 1980, he progressed to a news presenter and sports commentator until resigning from the Cameroon Radio Television Corporation (CRTV) in 1997.
