New CEO Appointed For Telkom Kenya
Mugo Kibati has been named as the new CEO at Telkom Kenya after Aldo Mareuse resigned in order to go on and pursue other interests.
Kibati had previously held the role of the Delivery Secretariat (VDS) Director General at the semi-autonomous agency Vision 2030. He oversaw policy implementation over many sectors and, in so doing, definitely had a hand in pushing Kenya to a middle-income country.
He also served as the CEO and Group Managing Director at East African Cables PLC, and just prior to this latest appointment he was the immediate former Group CEO of Sanlam Kenya PLC.
According to information supplied by sources close to the matter, Kibati is an Electrical Engineer and possesses an Electrical Engineering Degree from Moi University in Kenya, a Master of Business Administration Degree from George Washington University in the USA and a Master of Science Degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the USA.
Kibati takes over at a very trying time for the company as it fights to have the playing field levelled out in an attempt to compete with what it believes is an unfair market dominance on the part of Safaricom.
The incoming CEO has said that he intends to push the company to the next level.
The former CEO Mareuse had been with the company since 2016, and according to the Board Chair of Telkom Kenya Eddie Njoroge, one of his achievements in the role was the expansion of the company's network by 50%.
Njoroge said that the board was extremely grateful to Aldo for his strong leadership of the company over the past three years. He also added that some more notable milestones under Mareuse’s administration were the successful rebranding of the company to Telkom and the rolling out of a 4G network, resulting in the company becoming the leading data operator of choice in the market.
The chairman of the board wished Mareuse all the best in his future endeavours.
