Igathe returns to corporate world with Equity Bank job

Nairobi County ex-Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe has been appointed as Equity Bank’s #ticker:EQTY Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), a new role that has him bouncing back into the corporate world after his gamble into politics aborted prematurely.

Equity Bank is set to announce his appointment at an investor briefing slated for this Thursday.

Mr Igathe resigned as the Deputy Governor in January this year after his relationship with the governor turned sour.

In his resignation letter, he said he had failed to earn the trust of county boss Mike Sonko, and that this deterred him from working effectively for Nairobi residents.

It wasn’t immediately clear when his appointment at the lender took effect.
