Director General GES

Dr. Eric Nkansah

From a humble beginning, Dr. Nkansah started off as a teacher in the year 2000 at Christian Education Complex Junior High School (JHS), Kintampo in the Bono East Region of Ghana. After two years with Christian Education Complex, the then Headmaster of Kintampo Senior High School handed him a rare opportunity to teach Geography and Economics on part time. Even when young Nkansah started his studies at the University of Cape Coast, he continued to teach Geography in the school during vacations between 2002-2006.

He did his National Service with the National Health Insurance Scheme at Konongo in the Ashanti Akyem Central District where he diligently worked as Management Information Systems Officer.

He subsequently joined Barclays Bank of Ghana (now Absa) for over six years and rose through the ranks to the position of Sales Manager.

Whilst working for the Bank, he also lectured on a part-time basis at the Garden City University College and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana. In 2012, he took up a full-time lecturer position at Kumasi Technical University. At Kumasi Technical University, he contributed immensely to teaching, research, programme development, and community service to the university's development.

He also worked as the Executive Director of Career Spring Institute, a private consulting firm licensed to provide training for members and potential members of local and international professional bodies and specialised training for small, medium, and large corporations.
