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.

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.

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.
