Equity Group Holdings Plc has appointed Mrs. Mary Wangari Wamae as Group Executive Director overseeing the Group’s subsidiaries. Her new role will include overseeing the management of the Group’s banking subsidiaries in DRC Congo, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and South Sudan.
In 2014, Mrs. Wamae was promoted to Group Director of Strategy, Legal Services and Group Company Secretary, a position she has held until her recent promotion.
Her previous position has been split into two roles: Group Director of Legal Services & Company Secretary, which has been taken up by Mrs. Christine Akinyi Browne and Group Director of Strategy, Strategic Partnerships & Investor Relations, taken up by Mr. Brent Malahay.
“We are reorganizing the structure in line with the Group’s growth as reflected in the capital base, asset base and client base in response to the funding and infrastructure capability as well as to reposition ourselves for opportunities that will open up from the anticipated growth locally and in the region.” says Dr. James Mwangi Equity Group Managing Director and CEO.
These appointments come shortly after the appointments of former deputy governor Polycarp Igathe as the Group Chief Commercial Officer and Julius Kayoboke as the Group Director in charge of Customer Experience and Product Management.
