Mr. Kelly also commended Ghana’s Ambassador to the United States, H.E. Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah, who was a special guest of honor, for his role in making Overland-Tandberg’s plan to operate in Ghana possible.

A few months ago, the Ambassador met with us and sold Ghana to us and encouraged our company to set up operations in Ghana. We have worked at a neck-breaking speed to make this possible in just about three months. And I’m happy to say that we have acquired office space in Ghana and ready to start operations soon,” Mr. Kelly revealed.

Last year, Ambassador Adjei-Barwuah met with Senior Executives of high profile tech companies in San Francisco including eBay, SAP, Overland-Tanberg, PayPal, Bosch, etc and encouraged them to consider extending their operations to Ghana.

Overland-Tandberg was founded in 1979 and provides excellent data storage and archive solutions that are reliable and mindfully built for the Enterprise and SMB. This year, the company is celebrating 40 years as a global technology leader protecting the digital assets of businesses in about 90 countries.
