Kenya Airways appoints new CEO
21 / 03 / 2015
MBUVI NGUNZE has been appointed group managing director and chief executive of East African flag-carrier Kenya Airways.
From December, he takes over from Dr Titus Naikuni who is retiring at the end of November, having been at the helm for 11 years.
“In January this year, the board of directors engaged the services of an international executive search firm to assist the board in identifying a successor to Dr Naikuni," reveals Evanson Mwaniki, chairman of the board.
The board has now begun the process of recruiting a replacement for Ngunze’s current chief operating officer role.
"On behalf of the board of directors of Kenya Airways, I would also like to take this opportunity to call for support for Mbuvi Ngunze as he takes charge of the company’s day-to-day affairs and to wish Dr Naikuni and his family Godspeed as he prepares to go into his retirement," Mwaniki adds.
