Beginning on December 1, 2022, Polycarp Igathe will work for Tiger Brands in Johannesburg as its Chief Growth Officer for the rest of Africa.
Igathe served as a brand employee in the company’s Managing Director of its East Africa business before his departure to join the British petroleum company, Vivo Energy.
“I look forward to the diverse set of capabilities and knowledge of the continent that Polycarp will bring to driving the execution of our ambitious growth strategy for the Rest of Africa business and his broader contribution to the development and execution of the Tiger Brands business strategy,” says Doyle.
He was former deputy governor for Nairobi in the administration of Mike Sonko but resigned a year after being elected in office claiming he failed to earn the governor’s trust and thus couldn’t deliver his oath of office.
Igathe was the candidate for Azimio in the 2022 General election where the current governor Sakaja won.
