Speaking to Citi Business on his four decades of service to the audit firm, Mr. Amanor Dodoo described his stay as a rollercoaster ride with many exciting times.
“Serving the business community has been an exceptional privilege. Clearly, for the people who place a lot of reliance on the work that we do, I believe it has been some kind of honor to serve them.
We try to excel in anything that we do; I don’t think there is been a kind of service that we have provided that falls short and it measures up to anything you can get in any part of the world,” he stated.
