Members of the banking industry’s lobby organization Kenya Bankers Association (KBA) have elected NCBA Bank Managing Director and CEO John Gachora and Family Bank Chief Executive Officer Rebecca Mbithi as the incoming Chairperson and Vice Chairperson, respectively, for the period 2021 to 2022.
Mr. Gachora, who previously served as Vice Chairperson, takes over from Mr. Joshua Oigara, who chaired the KBA Governing Council for the past three years.
KBA Chief Executive Officer Dr. Habil Olaka welcomed the new leadership and thanked Mr. Oigara for his service over the years. Dr. Olaka also welcomed Caritas Microfinance Bank, which joined the Association in 2020.
“We are confident the bank will contribute to our long-term vision of reinforcing the industry’s role in advancing Kenya’s sustainable economic development,” he said.
