Margaret Boateng Sekyere is a Director of Mega African Capital Limited. She is currently a Partner of OAK Partners Limited. Margaret has more than twenty years of experience in private and public sector management in areas of project management, administration, financial and human resource management; and public sector reforms. Margaret was instrumental in the development of public sector reforms in Sierra Leone in the early 1990s and recently, 2004 to 2007, in Ghana.

Her work prior to her 5 year sojourn in Sierra Leone from 1985 – 1989 was in Public Accounting and Mortgage Banking in the USA after which she joined Price Waterhouse (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) in Ghana as a Management Consultant with special focus on Financial Management Reviews and Assessments of donor funding to public sector institutions.

From 1998 – 2003, Margaret, in her capacity as Senior Resource Management Officer of the World Bank Office in Ghana managed the transition from the existing administrative arrangements to an effective office management system, responsive to the new needs created by the enhanced role and larger staff size of the Country Office. She ensured strong internal controls through information sharing and advice on the Bank‟s internal control policies and procedures leading to improved knowledge and awareness of staff at all levels. 

Margaret effectively managed the administrative services and accounting team in the Country Office including training, systematic back-up and replacement planning. She played a key role in the coaching and development of newly recruited resource management staff for Country Offices in the Africa Region, namely, South Africa, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Kenya.

In September 2003, Margaret joined a team, led by the Senior Minister, which spearheaded the re-tooling of the Government of Ghana‟s Public Sector Reform Agenda. In the 4th quarter of 2007, she successfully led the team in the Ministry of Public Sector Reform that negotiated additional financing of US$10 million from the International Development Agency in support of prioritized Programmed Activities for the Government‟s Public Sector Reform agenda. Before joining the team at OAK Partners in 2008, Margaret successfully restructured the administrative and financial arrangements of a family-owned construction business that mainly focuses on delivering custom homes. Margaret received a Bachelor‟s degree in Accounting and an MBA from Howard University in Washington D.C in 1985 and 1987 respectively. She is 51 years old and married with two (2) children.
