Fives months after joining Equity Group Polycarp Igathe has been named the Managing Director of Equity Bank Kenya.

This comes barely half an year after the former Deputy Governor resigned from his post in a huff following differences between himself and Governor Mike Sonko.

His ascension to the MD post marks the completion of the Equity Group’s strategy which was to separate the management of its various subsidiaries from the management of the Holding Company.

Dr James Mwangi retains stewardship of the firm and will now become the Group Chief Executive and Group Managing Director providing overall strategic direction and oversight to the Group.
