Polycarp Igathe Resigns: Polycarp Igathe has resigned as the Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Vivo Energy. The resignation comes barely an year after he resigned from Equity Bank.
An internal communication sent by Vivo Energy CEO Christian Chammas, the company’s head announced Omar Benson as Igathe’s replacement in an acting capacity.
“We thank Polycarp for his contribution to Vivo Energy and wish him the very best for the future,” Chammas said.
Omar will now report directly to the CEO on an interim basis while also continuing with his current role as Head of Retail and CR Strategy and Projects.
Mr Igathe quit his job as the chief executive of Vivo Energy Kenya in 2017 to join politics as Mike Mbuvi Sonko’s running mate for the Nairobi governorship post. Igathe had previously worked at Haco (the consumer goods manufacturer), Coca-Cola, Africa Online and Kenya Breweries Limited.
Igathe has since 2017 jumped from the corporate world to politics and back to the corporate world, each time appearing to get a better job than his previous one.
“I am pleased to announce that Polycarp Igathe will rejoin Vivo Energy as the Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing, a newly created role that is being added to the Vivo Executive Management (VEM),” read a statement from Vivo Energy CEO Christian Chammas when Igathe rejoined Vivo.
