New dawn for KQ as Michael Joseph is elected Chairman

Kenya Airways has elected ex-Safaricom CEO Michael Joseph as its new board chairman.

 

Joseph replaces Dennis Awori who resigned with effect from October 26, 2016 after serving 11 months at the helm of the board.

Joseph boasts of a huge wealth of experience which the troubled airline hopes they can bank on in its turnaround strategy, after a turbulent year which was characterised by strikes, flight cancellations  and massive losses.

Pilots' demands

The airline’s pilots had earlier threatened to strike unless its top brass, which included Awori, paved way for a new management.

It took the intervention of the government to finally persuade the pilots to call off their strike and heed to their demands averting losses that could have run into hundreds of millions of shillings daily.

Joseph is currently employed by Vodafone Group Services Limited as the Director of Mobile Money and is responsible for leading the strategic growth and development of M-Pesa services.
