Their individual and collective knowledge and experience will add great strategic insight to Kosmos’ work in Ghana as we celebrate 10 years of success and look toward an even brighter future.” 

On his part, Philippe Ayivor said, “International companies working in Ghana have a role to play in helping the country reach its full potential.  Kosmos believes in our future and recognizes that its success is tied to Ghana’s overall prosperity. I am pleased to be a part of their advisory council.”

It was pointed out by Seth Kwasi Dei that, “Job creation and broad economic development are the best legacies that a company can give its host country.  After 10 years of investment in Ghana, Kosmos continues to increase its level of engagement and wants to be a part of creating our country’s future. With my business background and expertise, I can support their efforts.”

 Ishmael E. Yamson said, “Kosmos has a healthy and realistic understanding that its continued success is linked to the promise of Ghana’s future.
