In view of his achievements at both organisations, Mr. Danso was later to benefit from a World Bank sponsored consultancy with SIGA


In Nigeria, Kwabena’s contribution to the growth of the private financial intermediation processes, the medical furniture/equipment business and the beverage industry as Accountant and Finance and Administration Manager of two different companies in the development of accounting systems was hailed by those organisations. Before engagement with Coastal Bottlers Limited, Mr. Danso had also successfully conducted a diagnostic analysis to unearth causes of the company’s stagnation.


On his return to Ghana in 1996, Mr. Danso was engaged as Controller with a joint Ghana-Swiss duty-free trading company at the airport and other prime locations for eight years during which period he attended two group executive development programs, one in Switzerland and the other in France.

He supervised the computerization of the accounting system at Weitnauer & GTDC Limited, the Swiss-Ghana joint venture.

He also investigated payments under the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFUND)-sponsored National Apprenticeship Program and provided assurance on its expenditures. He got involved with monitoring and evaluation of projects funded by the World Bank, African Development Bank, and other donor agencies.


In consultancy, he assisted, supervised and led business planning/advisory services assignments for clients such as USAID and the Danish Government and has been on retainership with the USAID, as well as many local companies. Currently, also, he is providing leadership, as partner of an accounting firm, handling thirty six clients across a broad spectrum of businesses such as small-scale mining, hospitality, pharmaceutical and other clients.
