Nation appoints new boss after Linus Kaikai and Larry Madowo’s exits

This is quite the catch!

Nation Media Group’s CEO Joseph Muganda kicked off the departures after resigning from the post to join Vivo Energy.

NTV General Manager Linus Kaikai later left to join Royal Media Services, top journalist Larry Madowo left to join BBC as a Business Editor leading the Business unit in Africa while Jamila Mohammed took up the position of Managing Editor for the Swahili Desk.

Following this huge loss, Nation Media has now tapped the talents of one Stephen Dunbar-Johnson who will join Nation Media as a director.

Mr Stephen Dunbar is the president, international of The New York Times Company. In his position at The NYT, Dunbar is responsible for ‘the oversight and strategic development of the Times Company's international businesses.’

Before joining NYT, Dunbar worked as the Publisher of the International Herald Tribune (IHT) and spent over 12 years working at the Financial Times.

Below is the release announcing his appointment:
