‘We will continue to invest to grow fuel, non-fuel offerings’

Vivo Energy, the pan-African retailer and marketer of Shell and Engen-branded fuels and lubricants, has marked the first decade of the Group’s formation with local celebrations across its 23 operating countries and support teams.

The company was formed on December 1, 2011, initially with seven Shell-branded countries, and a further eight Shell-branded countries being added to the Group within two years. 

In 2019, eight more countries were added, this time under the Engen-brand. Vivo Energy Ghana joined the group in 2013.

In its first decade, the Vivo Energy story has been one of growth, nearly doubling the size of its retail network. 

Other highlights included creation of a non-fuel retail offer, development of the commercial offer, adding alternative power solutions, and growth of the lubricants business.

Commenting on the milestone, Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Vivo Energy Ghana, Christian Chammas, said “December 1 marks a special day in the history of Vivo Energy, and I am very proud of the immense achievements that we have achieved over our first 10 years”. 

“These include our relentless prioritisation of Health Safety Security Environment and Quality (HSSEQ); our sustained growth; our focus on customers; and a determination to always do business the right way.  Underpinning all of these is the dedication and commitment of the teams who work for Vivo Energy, and I pay particular thanks to them for their ongoing commitment to deliver our strategy, guided by our purpose.”

The Managing Director of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mr Kader Maiga, said Vivo Energy Group from the onset had set out to be a fast acting, entrepreneurial and agile organisation, supported by the strength and reputation of powerful consumer brands. 

He said they had tried to live up to the Group’s ambitions on a daily basis in Ghana, offering high-quality products and services to their retail and commercial customers, and striving to achieve the group’s vision of becoming Africa’s most respected energy business.

“It is worth noting that Ghana’s retail network has almost doubled since joining the group, setting industry standards and driving innovation in the downstream petroleum sector,” he added.

Mr Kader Maiga stated that Vivo Energy would continue to invest to grow its fuel and non-fuel offerings to meet this demand, while broadening its product mix to provide long-term benefits to customers and stakeholders.
