Robert Ebo Hinson, the chartered marketer and scholar, has been appointed as pro-vice-chancellor of Ghana Communication Technology University (GCTU).
In a statement, the institution’s council said the appointment, which is for a period of three years, takes effect from May 1, 2022.
GCTU is a “progressive” public university. The act establishing the institution notes that the university aims at providing a viable centre for higher education in information and communication technology.
In a letter accepting the offer, Hinson expressed his delight at joining an institution which aims to provide “global consultancy services to both the private and public sectors, fostering university-industry linkages, promoting basic and applied research, and creating an entrepreneurial environment that will support innovation and product incubation development.”
Hinson has held several higher education administrative roles across east and west African varsities.
He has served as vice-chancellor, rector, deputy vice-chancellor, director of the institutional advancement, head of a residential hall, as well as head of the academic department.
In September last year, Hinson was named the deputy vice-chancellor academic at the University of Kigali (UoK), Rwanda.
He was earlier appointed an honorary marketing professor at Durban University of Technology, South Africa, as well as a visiting professor at the Lincoln International Business School in the United Kingdom.
In December, the scholar published a list of his achievements within the first 100 days of his appointment as UoK’s deputy vice-chancellor.
