Paul Ndichu leaves the chief executive’s role at Interswitch Kenya with effect from 20th September 2018.
The news of his sudden departure comes amidst a background of Interswitch Group’s desire to strengthen its strategy following its involvement in East Africa.
Ndichu joined Interswitch Kenya in November 2016 and has been serving as the chief executive officer.
In a brief statement, Interswitch Group explained their desire to strengthen their strategy by merging operations in Kenya and Uganda. A lead that has made the position of the chief executive officer redundant.
This merge has however created three new positions; the Regional Chief Executive Officer (RCEO), who will oversee operations for Kenya and Uganda alongside a Country General Manager (CGM) role for the respective countries.
Romana Rajput, who has been with Interswitch Kenya will step in as the Country General Manager, Kenya, while the position remains open in Uganda.
