Kofi Sefa-Boakye Vice President Policy, Planning & Development
Kofi Sefa-Boakye is the Vice President for Policy, Planning and Development. As a policy strategist, Kofi's activities include but not limited to: advising communities and emerging market economies on the rationale for adopting e-government solution systems to enhance decision making; analyzing unique aspects of the particular social contexts into which e-government solutions will be provided to maximize social, political and economic goals and; providing periodic orientation sessions for prospective HHB customers.
Kofi holds a doctorate degree in Policy, Planning and Development from the University of Southern California. Additionally, Dr. Kofi Sefa-Boakye holds a master's degree in Economics and masters degree in Urban Planning. In addition to his academic credentials, Dr. Kofi Sefa-Boakye brings over 20 years of professional experience in community economic development, policy planning, and project management to HHB.
As the Community Redevelopment Manager for the City of Compton (California) in the 1980's, Dr. Kofi Sefa-Boakye utilized his multifaceted background in negotiations, economic development and policy analysis to assist decision makers in community development activities. Kofi's accomplishments in policy and economic development arena during his tenure in local government included streamlining the operating procedures for bidding and procurement in community development projects, formulating several public/private partnership agreements and structuring municipal bond financing schemes resulting in the construction of over $100 million housing, commercial and industrial projects in Compton.
Dr. Sefa-Boakye believes that mere infusion of computers and telecommunication systems into an environment without a consideration for the socioeconomic context into which the software and hardware would be placed is very simplistic and counterproductive. Kofi's incisive grasp of this overlooked pitfall in e-government systems has made him a revered participant in national and international conferences where he lectures and brainstorms e-government issues with leading social scientists and policy analysts. In additions to his community development activities, Kofi holds two fellowships- Sustainable Cities fellowship at USC (Los Angeles, CA) and a Knight fellowship in community Building at the University of Miami (Florida).
