James Mwangi Equity CEO: Equity Bank chief executive officer James Mwangi has said that he is not planning to retire anytime soon. The chief executive officer has been reported as saying that he would like to retain his top position until he clocks age 75. “The earliest maybe on my own volition that I would ask to retire is when I turn 75!” the 57-year-old has been quoted by the Business Daily. “I have another 20 years. I take consolation from one of my role models, Warren Buffett who is still chief executive at the range of 87.”
