NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 5 – Sanlam Kenya has appointed George Kuria as acting Group Chief Executive Officer following the resignation of Mugo Kibati.
The company’s Board appointed Kuria, who is the Sanlam General Insurance Limited CEO, to facilitate a smooth handover, said Dr. John Simba, Sanlam Kenya Board Chairman.
In a statement, Simba said Mr. Kibati will be leaving the company end of February 2018 to pursue personal and professional business interests.
Simba adds that the Company’s board will commence a local and international executive search process aimed at competitively filling the position of the General Chief Executive.
“The Board remains grateful to Mr. Kibati for his dedicated service and professional commitment to Sanlam Kenya, having assumed the Group leadership role from February 2015,” said Simba.
Kibati oversaw the Group’s rebrand from Pan Africa Insurance Holdings to Sanlam Kenya and the integration of the Group’s recently acquired General Insurance business and the construction to completion of Sanlam Tower.
