Renowned Ghanaian entrepreneur and economic policy analyst, Senyo Hosi has shared that he was privileged to have come from a loving family, deeply rooted in discipline.
Sharing his childhood experiences in an exclusive interview with Y 107.9 FM’s Rev Erskine on the Y Leaderboard Series, Mr. Hosi noted that he grew up in a big family that was filled with a lot of warmth.
According to him, his home was always bustling with activity since a lot of people were mostly around. He shared that it was not uncommon for his mother to take in kids who had nowhere to sleep for the night.
“We had a big family that had a lot of warmth and too many people. The house was filled with a lot of cousins and with people who were not even related lived with us. My house was quite an interesting place. You could wake up and not know where you’re sleeping because you don’t know who is coming to visit next. A lot of kids come to play in the house and when my mom can’t figure out where they have to go she’ll just keep them for the night,” he shared.
Despite the love in the household, Mr Hosi emphasized that there was also a lot of discipline and order, with his mother being a no-nonsense person, and his father a “tough guy”.
These traits, according to him, have helped him in his pursuits of life and a successful entrepreneur
He also recounted growing up in the Adenta area in the early 80s which he described as an interesting place to live because monkeys could simply pop in and out of their house.
The entrepreneur also talked about his educational background, stating that he attended school Patang Hospital JHS – “we were a bit in the bridge of the old system and the new system – that’s the JHS system that has been introduced. We were just plunged into it.”
Senyo Hosi has had a remarkable career so far being a finance and economic policy analyst with management experience across varying industries including downstream petroleum, industry advocacy, public policy development, finance, logistics and commodity trading.
He is former CEO of the Ghana Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors and also served on various public and corporate boards including the Ghana Highways Authority Board, Ghana’s Ministry of Energy’s Ministerial Advisory Board, the Private Enterprise Federation, Legacy Bonds Limited and NDK Capital Ltd.
He was awarded the Oil and Gas Personality of the year (Downstream) in 2016 by the Offshore Africa Magazine and the Africa Impact CEO award by the Africa Leadership Magazine in 2017.
