Equity Bank Kenya, a subsidiary of Equity Group Holdings Plc announced the appointment, Monday, of its long serving Director, Gerald Warui as its 4th Managing Director in its 35-year history.
This follows the board's acceptance of the resignation of Polycarp Igathe who leaves the position at the end of August. Igathe will rejoin his previous employer, Vivo, to take up a newly created role as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Africa.
The Equity Board received and accepted Igathe's resignation letter today following his eight-month tenure in the role. To ensure a smooth transition of operations Igathe will hand over his duties to Warui before his departure at the end of August.
Equity Group places a premium on developing strong, broad based management talent and over the last five years the financial industry has benefited significantly from this pool and many of its team members now hold senior roles in leading companies across Africa, including four of its own subsidiaries in Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and South Sudan.
Warui has served Equity Bank for 21 years. He holds an Executive Master of Business Administration degree from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) and is also a Certified Public Accountant CPA (K), and a graduate of Advanced Management Program offered by IESE Business School, Barcelona, Spain.
