Mr Joseph Winful

Association of Chartered Accountants, Ghana

Mr Joseph Winful is a renowned Business Consultant and past Senior Partner of KPMG.  He retired at the end of December 2013.  He has 38 years’ experience of corporate leadership, good governance, human resource and business improvement, policy development, analysis and project management to clients and project teams. He is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

His key areas of experience include strategic financial management, general performance improvement, implementation of financial management systems, human resource management, in addition to extensive professional practice. Embracing the needs of public, private and not-for-profit organisations, he is experienced at forging partnerships at national, regional and international levels. With a great deal of experience in Africa, his cultural awareness and personal approach to working with people is well received in different and challenging situations. Delivering core business objectives and getting ‘buy-in’ from his clients and project teams are paramount objectives in his work.

On the national level, he applied his relationship building skills to interact with National leaders and Senior Public Officials to address issues of clients with great success. He achieved these regardless of the political party in power. An example is his intervention at the Ministry of Trade level when Nestle wanted approval for the establishment of their Regional Office in Ghana as a free zone entity.

He is intimately involved with policy and practice in financial management and development and is a regular presenter at conferences. He is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Wallace Winful Consulting, a firm specialising in restructuring/turnaround and capacity building.
