Vivo Energy Kenya on Tuesday announced the appointment of Peter Murungi as Managing Director effective December 1, 2019.

This comes after the former boss, Joe Muganda’s decision to leave the firm at the end of November following a two-year stint.

Joe Muganda took the mantle following the exit of Polycarp Igathe who had resigned in 2017 to take up the job of Nairobi Deputy Governor; a role from which he has since resigned.  

Prior to Vivo Energy, Muganda had just quit his job as Nation Media Group CEO before completing his tenure. He had joined the Group from Kenya Breweries Limited (KBL) where he had been Managing Director for five years.

"I would like to thank Joe for the contribution he has made as MD of Vivo Kenya, and wish him well for the future. I am certain that Peter will build on his success to steer the organisation to even greater achievements," said Hans Paulsen, Vivo Energy EVP East and Southern Africa.
