The wife of Host of Metro TV current affairs TV Show Good Evening Ghana, Rosemary Beryl-Archer Otchere has been appointed by President Akufo-Addo as the new Deputy Chief Executive of the Ghana Export-Import (EXIM) Bank.
Mrs. Adom Otchere whose husband has been tagged on social media as a “government mercenary” will now be part of Ghana’s big salary earners with estimates reportedly ranging between Ghc67,000 and at least Ghc75,000 excluding allowances and bonuses.
As Deputy Chief Executive, Rosemary Berly Archer will be in Charge of Banking and Business development of the Ghana EXIM Bank.
This appointment is her second under Akufo-Addo’s government as in 2017 when the NPP came to power, she was strategically appointed as the Head of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) of the same institution which was only a preparation for her present elevation to number two in the top bank.
Mrs. Adom Otchere attended Holy Child School from where she entered University of Ghana and later University of Bedfordshire in the UK.
Her new appointment letter sighted by MyNewsGh.com and signed by Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare and dated 4th January 2022 said she is being appointed in line with Act 911 of the 2016 Ghana Export and Import Bank Act passed under the erstwhile John Mahama administration which created the bank as a special purpose vehicle to support the exports and import value chain.
“Pursuant to Section 18(1) of the Ghana Export-Import Bank Act, 2016 (Act 911), the President has appointed you to act as the Deputy Chief Executive – Business/Banking of Ghana Export-Import Bank (the Bank), pending receipt of the constitutionally required advice of the governing board of the Bank, given in consultation with the Public Services Commission,” the letter said.
While various sources believe her husband was instrumental in the opening of the doors of power for her, on her own merit she has more than 15 years’ experience working within the Telecom, media and banking sector having worked with UMB, MTN, Access Bank and Fidelity Bank.
