The Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) has appointed a new chief executive to take over from Ms Betty Maina who retires in June.
Mrs Phyllis Wakiaga who served for two years at KAM as the head of Policy Research and Advocacy will start her term on July 1. Ms Maina has served as the CEO of KAM for the last 11 years.
Pradeep Paunrana, the KAM chairman said they had seen it fit not to extend Ms Maina’s term.
“Betty has served the organisation well and the industry will continue to benefit from her wealth of knowledge as she continues to work with the organisation in a consultancy capacity,” Mr Paunrana said.
“Mrs Wakiaga will be the CEO designate of the organisation with effect from April 1 and will take over as the CEO from July 1,” he said.
