GN Bank was formed on May 30th, 1997, however it took until 2006 to get the licence to start the company: 9 years of filing application. Before 1997, Papa Kwesi Nduom and his team wanted to start as a universal bank but for 5 years, they didn’t get the universal bank license. That was when they decided to start as a Savings and Loans Company in 1997 but got the Savings and Loans License after 9 years.
GN Bank started from the boys quarters of a house at North Ridge with less than 10 employees. That place was the headquarters and everything to the company at that time. The lesson here is ” Start small and do all the things necessary to get going”. GN Bank started as First National Savings and Loans Company. The dream however was to become a Universal bank.

It’s very shocking and people can’t believe it. I was sacked from school because I failed several times and I repeated form 3 three times. I was severely ridiculed by family and friends but I did not give up. I was passionate about being a great technician and a DJ then diverted to learn pastry because my dad was a Big Pastry Chef. I started learning pastry after my mum moved me from technical school at the age of 16. I passed with high mark in the Hotel School.
After that, I started to look for a job in the North of Mauritius in a big hotel at the age of 17 and earned 90 cedis per month equivalent in Ghana cedis. I moved from hotel to hotel and got promoted several times. I also participated in 8 openings of big 5-star hotels, worked in total in 11 hotels and finally in 2004, left Mauritius to come to Ghana
From trainee pastry cook in 1990 to Executive Chef in 2006 in Ghana and then promoted as Food and beverages Manager in 2008 and finally became the operations manager in 2010 of White Sands Beach, Resort and Spa.
This is a list of hotels I have worked with:
Pullman hotel / le Mauricia Hotel 1990 To 1995
La clef des Champs Restaurant, Mauritius 1995
Sofitel Imperial Hotel, Mauritius 1995 To 1997
The Résidence Hotel, Mauritius 1998 To 2001
Hilton hotel Mauritius in 2001
Opening of the Belle Mare plage villas Mauritius 2001-2002
Le Prince Maurice from 2002-2004
Lemuria Hotel Seychelles island 2002
Le Meridien Starwood’s Mauritius for 2004 To 2006
White Sands Beach Resort And Spa Ghana 2006 To 2017
In the future, I will like to work in several places such South America and Asia as General Manager or Operations Director and then open my own hotel school mainly in Pastry and Service.
My advice to young people is never to give up. They are to fight till they achieve their highest target.
I love Marshalls University College because the environment attracts me and there is the mentality of success and innovation in this institution. Since i am a creative man, this help me to achieve more. I also love the motto of Marshalls University College “Think innovation, think possibilities”. This drives me to success.
My passion is enhanced by creativity which comes back to my dream work which is being a DJ. This is why i am very involved and share in the passion of the Marshalls Online Radio.
Every year, there are 3 internship opportunities for Marshalls students at White Sands Beach, Resort and Spa. I encourage every student in Marshalls University College to take advantage of this opportunity. You are welcome.
