Kenswitch names Former Interswitch Sales Head Karimi Ithau as new MD

 

Kenswitch Kenya has appointed Karimi Ithau as its new Managing Director, replacing George Wainaina who left a few months ago.

Ms. Ithau previously served as the head of the sales network at Interswitch for the last five years prior to the new role.

Kenswitch, which was formed in 2002 to provide a shared infrastructure network for banks, has made the appointment at a time when it is looking to launch a new corporate identity among other rebrand initiatives in the next two months.

“We seek to provide innovative payments across the East African region,” said Kenswitch Kenya chairman Yousef Bazian in a statement on Monday.

“We are confident that she has what it takes to steer our Kenyan market to the next level.”

Ms. Ithau previously worked as the general manager and head of business development at Paynet, and also as head of e-banking – corporate and institutional banking division at the Standard Chartered Bank.
