Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI) has appointed Ms. Angela Ndambuki as the new Chief Executive Officer.
Ms Angela, who took over Monday, succeeds George Kiondo who has been the Acting CEO for the last 8 months.
In a press statement, KNCCI chairman Kiprono Kittony said that after a rigorous search, the Board concluded that Ms Ndambuki’s leadership and considerable experience in strategic leadership, advocacy brings a wealth of business knowledge and management experience.

“I look forward to working with her to create the next chapter of the KNCCI’s story of success. I also thank Mr Kiondo for his exemplary leadership of KNCCI over the last eight months,” Kittony said.
He noted that Kiondo has ensured that the organization has continued to move forward both strategically and operationally, and has delivered results having taken on additional responsibility at a critical time for the Company.

Ndambuki, on the other hand, said she was excited to take over as the new CEO especially at this time when the country is experiencing great and favorable attention as the most preferred investment destination in Africa from leading global investment agencies.
“My role will focus on enhancing this image and grow the international investors’ portfolio. With the same energy we shall focus on key advocacy issues affecting the business community to ensure a favorable business climate for Kenyan companies and facilitate ease of doing business,” she said.
She promised to grow the KNCCI membership in partnership with all the 47 county chapters to include all corporates and SMEs countrywide.
