Speaking to journalists after receiving the award, Mr Adu-Sarkodee attributed the recognition to the grace of God and the power of vision.

The CDH boss, dedicated the award to the management and staff of the CDH Group.
“I dedicate this award to the industrious, dedicated and efficient team I’m working with across the CDH Group. They have resiliently partnered me to move CDH from an intensive care unit in 2004 to a successful group of companies today,” the business leader added.
He continued, “…the journey has been long, and we give all the glory to God for prospering the CDH Group in many ways, but we believe our best days are yet to come.”
