Yvette Atekpe’s visionary leadership sparks a new era for Dimension Data in Ghana
In the vibrant city of Accra, Ghana, a pivotal moment unfolded on January 10, 2024, as the dynamic ICT industry witnessed the metamorphosis of Dimension Data under the visionary leadership of Yvette Adounvo Atekpe.
Under Yvette's stewardship as the Managing Director, Dimension Data Ghana experienced substantial growth, more than doubling its employee base. Now, Yvette embarked on a new chapter, leading a management buyout (MBO) that underscored her unwavering belief in the company's potential for a vibrant future.
The transformation gained clarity as Dimension Data in Ghana passed into the capable hands of Dynamic Data Solutions Ltd, a locally registered entity. This shift wasn't merely a change in ownership; it heralded an exciting rebranding effort, with a fresh marketing identity set to be unveiled on April 2.
A strategic cornerstone of the acquisition was the elevation of the new entity to a "Preferred Partner" status with NTT, Dimension Data's parent company. This alliance ensured customers a seamless continuation of the exemplary service and support they had come to expect, all underpinned by a steadfast commitment to excellence. Importantly, the transition included the smooth integration of Dimension Data in Ghana's employees into the folds of Dynamic Data Solutions LTD, preserving the relationships they had diligently built over the years.
Yvette Adounvo Atekpe, now assuming the role of founder and CEO of Dynamic Data Solutions, shared her optimism about the acquisition. "This MBO secures the future of the company and creates a Ghanaian owned and operated ICT company, which is enormously exciting for us," she expressed. Emphasizing the unique value as a Preferred Partner, Yvette highlighted the manifold benefits, from access to cutting-edge technology to unwavering support and leadership. The commitment to maintaining their established market presence reassured customers of uninterrupted access to top-quality products and around-the-clock support.
Richard Hechle, Managing Director of Dimension Data East & West Africa, applauded the acquisition's alignment with NTT's commitment to supporting female-owned and locally operated businesses. His confidence in Yvette and the accomplished management team of the new company shone through, as he envisioned a seamless transition of ownership and customer care, ensuring continuity of service excellence.
Yvette Adounvo Atekpe concluded with a pledge to contribute to Ghana's ICT sector development, emphasizing its critical role in the country's economic and social growth. With a promise to invest, innovate, and deliver the highest quality and most technologically advanced ICT products and services, the newly-formed team looked forward to shaping the future of the industry, driven by their collective expertise and unwavering dedication.
