Dimension Data has expanded its presence in West Africa by opening a regional office in Ghana.

The IT solutions provider employs 37 permanent staff in Ghana, and has plans to increase that number as the local team develops its systems integration skills over the coming 12 months, it said in a statement.  

"We're very excited to be expanding our African footprint. The market in West Africa is growing, and Ghana is going to play a key role in our growth journey," said Glad Dibetso, West Africa managing director at Dimension Data.

"We look forward to working closely with our clients and partners in Ghana and develop locally relevant solutions to help clients accelerate their business ambitions."

According to the World Bank, IT and construction now account for half of Ghana's national income, putting the two sectors on a level pegging with gold, cocoa and oil, which have traditionally dominated the country's exports.

Cisco, a Dimension Data vendor-partner, said that Dimension Data's expansion in West Africa was key to its own expansion plans in the region.

Oludare Ogunlade, Cisco's general manager for West Africa, said, "Dimension Data is a key strategic partner to Cisco globally. We've partnered with the Group for many years across many markets. We look forward to working with Dimension Data in Ghana and expanding our Global Alliance in yet another territory."

Dimension Data has been operating in West Africa for 10 years, through offices in Nigeria.
