Information obtained directly by YEN.com.gh indicates that Dr Gloria Ocran is currently the Group Executive Director in charge of Finance and Administration at Shield Insurance Brokers and Risk Management Co. Ltd., one of the leading Insurance Broking and Risk Management companies in Ghana, and Shield Microfinance Co. Ltd.
Gloria is also a Chartered Banker with phenomenal analytical background and vested interest in Service Marketing. As recently as 2019, she was the Chief Executive Officer at Shield Microfinance Co. Ltd., having held the fort since 2013.
She has over 18 years' extensive work experience in Management, Banking and Service Marketing and her chequered travails in the corporate world saw her leave her footprints at Merchant Bank (now Universal Merchant Bank) as a reputable Relationship Manager at their Corporate Banking Department.
There, she exercised enormous responsibility for the credit and general portfolio management of some key accounts in the Manufacturing, Trading and Commerce Unit for 5 years before being transferred to the Bank’s Treasury Department to head the Sales team.
Prior to that, she had a career-defining stint at the Ghana Commercial Bank (now GCB Bank Ltd.), where she cut her teeth, first as a Management-trainee for two years at their Banking Operations Department and then as a Relationship Manager at their Corporate Banking Division for three fruitful years.
Gloria is a serial go-getter with an eye for innovation and engraved passion to help solve some of the challenges and composite ills of corporate Ghana.
She holds a doctorate in Business Administration and Masters in Applied Business Research from the SBS Swiss Business School Zurich, Switzerland through the Nobel International Business School. She is an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Bankers, Ghana. She also holds an MBA in Finance from the University of Ghana Business School as well as a BSc degree in Agriculture from the University of Cape Coast.
Dr. Ocran is a woman of intellect and passion and thrives in a knowledge-sharing environment. No wonder she has attended several courses in Management, Banking and Service Marketing in Ghana. She has also participated in management and business innovation programs at the Harvard University (Boston, USA) and SBS Swiss Business School (Switzerland) respectively. She has rich practical knowledge of the aggregate local setting and is poised to impact her generation profusely.
She is an entrepreneur of repute, despite her heavy leanings in the white-collar corporate world. Her entrepreneurial acumen has not only glowed in her duties as a Relationship Manager in much of her banking career but evidentially through her joint initiatives in setting up the Shield Group of businesses, among other telling ventures. Significantly, therefore, she remains a stalwart and point of call as a mentor for young, emerging entrepreneurs in Ghana through her concerted efforts.
Dr Gloria Ocran remains a distinguished entrepreneur, a business executive, a consummate professional, a mother, a naturalist, and a perfectionist all rolled into one!
