Dr. Theresa Oppong-Beeko is the President of Manet Group, the second largest real estate developer in Ghana and the diversified office / residential and hotel accommodation provider. Over the years, her company has played an active role in the real estate industry. Immediately after earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in political Science and Sociology from the University of Ghana, Legon in 1985, she went into her first business venture – fishing, and failed, leaving her with debt equivalent to USD 2.5 million at the age of twenty-five. Feeling unlettered in business, she went back to Legon, acquired a Masters in Business Administration (where she was declared Best Marketing Student in 1990) and then began pursuing her real dream of doing buildings.
The company has built over 1,200 residential units, a three-star hotel resort, and other civil engineering facilities such as urban roads, motor carriages, bypasses, just to mention a few. Theresa Oppong Beeko, brings a refreshing whiff of fresh air to this, usually colourless, notoriously male-dominated industry.

In 1998, Theresa Oppong Beeko established Manet Hotels Limited, which acquired a beach Resort at Ada, just outside of Accra and developed it into a three-star, 48 room hotel with an amazing array of recreational and leisure activities on offer including Acqua sport and marlin fishing. It is now fittingly known as Manet Paradise.

She is blazing an entrepreneurial trail in Ghana’s real estate industry that is proving hard, near impossible for her private sector counterparts to follow.

Today, she sits astride the huge Manet Group, which comprises Manet Housing, a real estate development firm, Manet Paradise, a three star hotel resort, Manet Construction a civil engineering company; and Manet Towers. MANET Properties was presented with the overall property award for 2012 dubbed ‘Property Walk of Fame’ at the 5th Ghana Property Awards
