She replaces Mr. Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafo, who retired in July 2018.
She has built her entire career at the GCGL, where she started as a reporter and became the Women’s Editor of the Daily Graphic, during which time she wrote a weekly column on issues affecting women in the country.
Mrs. Kitcher was appointed the Editorial Administrator in 1998, which made her the administrative head of the News Department, liaising with the Human Resource Department, organising training programmes and recruiting journalists, proofreaders and other staff for the department.
During her tenure, she introduced written examinations as a requirement for recruiting reporters and proofreaders to ensure that those employed had the needed skills for their assigned tasks.
Mrs. Kitcher was, thereafter, appointed the first Editor of the Junior Graphic as a fully-fledged newspaper, a position she held from 2001 until her new appointment, making her the most senior and longest-serving editor in the company currently.
As Editor, she has mentored reporters to become key writers working on the various newspapers of the GCGL.
Her training in business enabled her to, over the years, source for funding from international donor agencies such as UNICEF, the UNFPA/PATH, the African Youth Alliance (AYA), Plan Ghana, among others, to plan and execute various projects for the company.
