GLICO, a renowned brand in Ghana’s insurance landscape, has been awarded for “making traditional life insurance products accepted in Ghana’s market at a time when life insurance was neither understood nor demanded”.
The award event, organized by the Business Executive Magazine dubbed, “Ghana Development Awards 2016”, was held to recognize private and public enterprises whose activities have impacted significantly Ghana’s economic growth and development.
Receiving the award on behalf of GLICO GROUP, the Group Head, Corporate Affairs & Marketing, Nana Efua Rockson, thanked the organisers for this recognition. She stated that GLICO is fuelled by its passion to bring insurance to the doorstep of every Ghanaian, and this objective is so dear to the company’s heart and remains fresh just as the time it commenced operations in 1987.
She added that, “as long as there are insurable needs, GLICO would continue to offer the needed cushion, when Ghanaians fall, as a result of the uncertainties of life.”
Dr. Kwame Achampong-Kyei, the Executive Chairman, Leader and Founder of GLICO, did not hide his appreciation when presented with the award at his office. He dedicated the award to the numerous customers who have kept faith with GLICO and continue to patronize its services.
He reflected on the past, saying that it has been a long journey, but one worth its challenges and successes. This he explained as; Ghana deserves to have great indigenous companies as part of its development that have made significant contributions to tax payments, employment opportunities, provision of social amenities and most importantly, adding value to the lives of its people. GLICO indeed deserves this award for contributing to Mother Ghana.
It is worthy to note that GLICO started operations as a life insurance company called GLICO. Significantly, over the years, it has grown into a Group status with six subsidiaries namely: GLICO LIFE, GLICO HEALTHCARE, GLICO PROPERTIES, GLICO CAPITAL, GLICO GENERAL and GLICO PENSIONS, all together providing innovative and quality insurance/ financial products and services for the Ghanaian people.
