In May 2003, he was attracted once again to Guinness Ghana Breweries where, for over a period spanning nearly five years, he took up various key appointments, including Innovations Manager and Marketing Manager for the Stouts. From October 2006 to September 2007, he was appointed Marketing Director of Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited, a position whose attendant responsibilities he discharged with distinction over a one-year period before he set his sight on the more exciting challenges then emerging on the country’s telecommunications sector.
In February 2007, he joined Scancom Limited, a member of the MTN Group, as Chief Marketing Officer; It is notable that just a little over a year of entering the telecommunications industry, he was voted by the Charted Institute of Marketing (Ghana) as the Marketing Practitioner of the Year, and again awarded the best Chief Marketing Officer with the MTN Group, further endorsing his capabilities as an exceptional player in the business of marketing. In October 2010, he moved on once again, accepting an offer from Bharti Airtel, Nigeria, where he served for a period as Chief Marketing Officer for Airtel’s Nigeria operation and lead to team rebranding effort from Zain to Airtel.

He led the Ghana team to successfully launch the Glo Mobile Ghana operation, acquiring record 1 million active subscribers within the first 100 days of launch. He become Regional Director Marketing Promotions for Globacom (Nigeria, Ghana and Benin Republic) in July 2012 a position he held until December 2013.
He was the Founder / CEO of Rudder Solutions from January 2014 till August 2015, where he shared his vast wealth of expertise with a broader section of the Ghanaian and Africa’s business communities. He is a founding member of OccupyGhana, playing a key strategic role in the programs driving good governance, fighting corruption and putting in place systems and structures to make Ghana work again. He took a backseat in Occupy Ghana strategy in 2015.
He believed that the quality of leadership being experienced in Ghana was not what Ghana deserved and took a stand to get off the fence and got into frontline politics, being elected as the Member of Parliament for the Awutu Senya West Constituency in the 2016 general elections, and subsequently appointed as one of the two deputy ministers at the Ministry of Communications.
