Chief Executive Officer of Joshob Construction Limited, Mr James Osei Brown has revealed that he was surprised to find his name on the Board of Directors of Asante Kotoko but took it as an honour to serve Asanteman.
The life patron and owner of Asante Kotoko, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II on Monday, June 29, 2020, appointed three men to beef up the already-formed nine-member Board of Directors taking the number to 12 led by Dr Kwame Kyei to serve as the highest decision making body of the club.
The new additions include James Osei Brown (CEO Joshob Construction Ltd), Martin Osei Kwaku Brobbey (CEO Lexta Ghana Ltd) and Kofi Amoah Abban (CEO Rigworld Group).
Speaking in an interview with Kumasi-based Hello FM, Osei Brown expressed his readiness to help the day-to-day running of the Porcupines.
“I was surprised but I saw it as an honour too. I was pleased and I am in to help. It’s true I have not been heard when it comes to football but as an Akan – we support Asante Kotoko. I normally do things on the low,” Osei Brown told Hello FM Tuesday Morning.
He continued: “It is too early to say something as I am yet to attend my first Board meeting. But since I’m part of it, we hope to achieve the club’s target”
“We will support the club with all our strength, knowledge to bring great things to the club and I know the supporters’ expectations will be met”
“I’m in to support the club with everything. Money isn’t anything but if it gets a point to support financially, why not. We are in to make the club great.”
