Kenya’s greatest telecoms administrator Safaricom has named Michael Joseph (envisioned) as the new board director, supplanting the long-serving Nicholas Ng’ang’a, who has resigned.
“He brings a wealth of skills and industry knowledge given his contribution to the growth of Safaricom from very humble beginnings to becoming one of the most innovative, influential and profitable companies in the East African region,” said Safaricom CEO Peter Ndegwa during the Thursday morning announcement.
Nicholas Nganga was in charge of the Safaricom board for a long time. Where he filled in as the administrator and non-official chief since 2007.
As the administrator, Michael Joseph will be entrusted with managing the activities, authority and administration of the Board, guaranteeing adequacy and setting the plan. He joined the board on September 8, 2008.
He will accept the job successful August 1, 2020 with a command to ‘improve client slant, more prominent brand thought and to support the association’s computerized change plan.’
Joseph took over as the Chief Executive official of Safaricom from July 2, 2019 to March 31, 2020, after the less than ideal destruction of the previous CEO Bob Collymore. Joseph was supplanted by Peter Ndegwa who is the current CEO of the telecoms firm.
Michael Joseph recently functioned as the CEO of Safaricom from July 2000 when the organization was re-propelled as a joint-adventure between Vodafone UK and Telkom Kenya until his retirement in November 2010.
He saw the firm develop organization from a client base of under 20,000 to over 16.71 million endorsers.
Joseph is utilized by Vodafone Group Services Limited as the Director of Mobile Money. He is Vodafone’s Strategic Advisor designated to the Boards of Vodacom Group South Africa, Vodacom Tanzania and Vodacom Mozambique.
He is additionally the Chairman of Kenya Airways.
