“Albert is going to be a great asset to both Atinka FM, Atinka TV and stations owned by Atinka Media Village and has a range of skill sets that will become increasingly important as the next few years unfold,” one of the staff of AMV stated.
“His knowledge of local radio, commercial and public sector, as well as his particular personal focus on all things digital will be a real bonus for us,” he added.
He continued, “As one of the youngest managing directors, Albert also represents a younger generation of radio professionals and brings with him a fresh new way of looking at a range of issues we all face from time to time. I’m looking forward to the contribution he will make to all the stations being managed by Atinka Media Village.”
Speaking at a short welcome ceremony at the premises of AMV located at Avenor in Accra, Mr Dwumfuor expressed his gratitude to the group chairman, Mr Tobbin, the board and the management of AMV.
He assured the general staff of a total turn-around for the AMV to maximise returns for shareholders.
Being a result-oriented person and after years of operating as a media consultant, Albert Dwumfuor is expected to bring to bear his worth of experience and dynamism to spearhead the vision of the organization.
