Nairobi — The Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) is seeking to appoint a new Chief Executive to replace Phyllis Wakiaga who is set to exit the office in June.
Wakiaga took over the leadership mantle in 2015 as CEO from Industrialization and Trade CS Betty Maina after serving as the Head of Policy, Research, and Advocacy from 2013.
"On behalf of the Kenya Association of Manufacturers Board of Directors, I would like to announce the departure of our Chief Executive, Phyllis Wakiaga, from the Association after 9 years of dedicated service," KAM Chair Mucai Kunyiha said in a statement.
Kunyiha noted that under Wakiaga's management, the Association established itself as the go-to adviser to Government and other high-level entities on matters of manufacturing and trade.
Wakiaga is moving on to pursue a new professional challenge in an Africa Advisory role.
She is currently serving her notice and will officially be leaving the office on June 30.
