Founder and President of the indigenous Ghanaian Angel Group of Companies, Dr Kwaku Oteng is the proud recipient of the prestigious International Diamond Prize for Excellence in Quality 2019 in Vienna, Austria.
The business mogul and other awardees drawn from across the globe were decorated by the European Society for Quality Research (ESQR) at its 2019 convention at the hotel Parkhotel Schönbrunn in Vienna (Austria), on Monday, December 9, 2019, “in recognition of their superior development efforts, overall excellence and commitment to economic progress, both for themselves and their communities as a whole”.
The awardees were selected from a wide range of private and public sectors, which strive for excellence and have proven their capabilities through their accomplishments, will renew their commitment to excellence and get new ideas on quality management.
“We bestowed this Diamond Award to Dr Kwaku Oteng for his enormous contribution to his country locally and globally; because I am a part of the investigation team, I had the opportunity to witness some of the amazing contributions he has impacted on his country, Ghana by supporting hospitals like the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital with life support machines and other clinical equipment worth over $30,000, which we find very humanitarian and generous”, a Senior Director of the Investigative Team for the ESQR Arthur Arista, said while presenting the award.
This adds to the cache of international trophies won by the businessman and philanthropist; in April 2019, Dr Kwaku Oteng was awarded by the Europe Business Assembly (EBA), with a Socrates Award of Luxury, Oxford UK, which included a certificate and a plaque, for his influence and immense contribution in the business industry both in Ghana and the world at large; he was recognised for his outstanding performance under the Economics and Business category.
He has investments in various sectors of the Ghanaian economy and is the owner of a number of thriving businesses in Ghana including; Angel Herbal Industries, Adonko Company Limited, Angel Broadcasting Network, Angel Educational Complex, Angel Transport Limited and Royal Angel Mining Company.

Bringing together the best professionals, companies and organizations in the field of Quality for the memorable event, the European Society for Quality Research (ESQR), through its recognition program, says it is “committed to spread the Quality Culture by engaging business leaders to have more active role in it”.
