Rev. Dr. Kwabena Darko is the founder and chairman of Darko farms and Co. Ltd. He has risen from humble beginnings to become arguably the famous industrialist within Christian circles in Ghana. His strong Christian beliefs, in a large measure, have been responsible for his thrift, shrewd business acumen and good entrepreneurial drive. He has conducted leadership seminars in over 40 countries around the world in his capacity as the International Secretary of the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International (FGBMFI).
Rev. Dr. Darko has held several responsible positions. Receiving a host of awards and honours. He was listed in the 1984 edition of "Who is Who" in world poultry and was a panelist on the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC)-sponsored seminar held in Dakar, Senegal.
He is an agro-industrialist and a businessman with a wide range of international contacts with corporate entities like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) just to mention a few. He finds time out of his busy schedule to be on the board of six other non-profit organisations, including Opportunity International Network (Chairman of the Board), African Business Roundtable (Vice Chairman), and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Sinapi Aba Trust now called Opportunity International Sinapi Aba Savings and Loans.
He has written and presented many feature articles and though his contributions to the nation have not been made with fanfare, they have not gone unnoticed. It is no wonder that he has received the Grand Medal "Order of the Volta" for his contributions to Agriculture.
