Safaricom, Kenya’s most valuable company, has appointed Michael Joseph as interim CEO following the death of Bob Collymore.
Joseph, who previously worked as the company’s chief executive until 2010 when Collymore took over, is a member of its board, and chairman of Kenya Airways. He returns to Safaricom’s executive management after Collymore died on Monday following a battle with cancer.
Joseph will serve “in the position until a substantive CEO is appointed”, he said Tuesday by phone. — Reported by Bella Genga, (c) 2019 Bloomberg LP
