Jamii Bora chief executive officer (CEO) Samuel Kimani has called it a day at the bank after seven years of service.

His place will be taken by Timothy Kabiru, the Deputy CEO, in an acting capacity when Kimani leaves next month.

Kimani will however retain his seat on the board, according to board chairman Richard Kiplagat, who said that Mr Kimani will be available for consultations during the transition period.

“He will continue to support the bank through the transition which we expect to be smooth as his successor has been an insider at the bank,” said Mr Kiplagat.
