Kevin Okyere

Founder & CEO

 

Kevin Okyere is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Springfield Group. He is a dynamic, astute entrepreneur gifted with skills in business strategy, finance and negotiations for the development of high-end commercial and developmental projects.

Kevin began breaking glass ceilings at a young age in line with his vision of aiding the sustainable development of Ghana through contributions to the economy. He began his entrepreneurial journey in the Telecommunications industry in Ghana with a focus on equipment evolution, network design and operations, and information technology.

He has established and managed multiple successful businesses over the past 10 years, some of which now form part of the Springfield Group. He established Springfield Energy in 2008 when he spotted an opportunity in the Ghanaian oil and gas sector for an independent local company. The company has since grown to be one of the leading energy actors in Ghana.

Kevin is also the visionary and driving force behind Springfield Exploration & Production Ltd, the first and only independent Ghanaian company to be awarded an oil block in Ghana.

He led the venture of Springfield into Nigeria, Africa’s largest oil market, by setting up Springfield Ashburton Limited in 2011. Springfield Ashburton is to date, the only Ghanaian company to be involved in energy-related trade out of Nigeria.

Kevin is a great philanthropist who continues to support many individuals to access healthcare and education from the basic to tertiary levels.
