The CEO of Quick Credit and Board Chairman of Quick Angels, Richard Nii Armah Quaye has inspired businesses to stand firm and make progress even in the face of financial challenges.

According to him, the Ghana Cedi reccorded its worse depreciation coupled with higher inflation of goods and services but Quick Credit and Quick Angels made enormous progress.

Against this background, he has asserted that “Everything Under This Sun Is Possible.”

He was speaking at the 2002 and 13th Edition of the annual Quick Credit and Quick Angels End of Year Party and Dinner held at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).

The gathering brought together all staff members and management and the board.

“We grew as a company during the times of Covid and the times of financial crisis that faced the industry, and this is only because we believe in differentiating ourselves from the competition and focusing on the fundamental yet very important and critical things that make us great and strong.

“We were not insulated from these challenges, our cost of doing business immediately started rising automatically and therefore the plans and the targets we set for ourselves this very year, but like we always do and have always done, management rose to the occasion and quickly developed policies and strategies that will insulate us largely from the risk and still put us on the path of growth.

And today, I can confidently tell you all that all the targets we set for ourselves this very year have been achieved regardless of the economic challenges,” he emphasized.

Touching on staff motivations, he announced a new regime of 40% salary increase from 2023.

“These achievements have inspired me to announce to you all today that the salaries of all Quick Credit employees shall be increased to a minimum of 40% and above across board and also declare a 100% bonus to you all.”

I am confident that the staff will be super motivated and inspired in 2023 and reciprocate this decision by working three times harder than you have ever been, show more discipline and respect to the policies of the company and above all give me and the company 100% loyalty at all times.

He also mentioned that over the years, the company has always been on a path of growth year on year, because they have worked together as a unit, developed and believed in principles that work for us only and work in our favour.
