Joe Sang has been appointed the Managing Director of the Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) after emerging top in the just concluded recruitment process.
Sang’s contract will be for a fresh term of four years, renewable subject to performance. He will take over from Dr. Macharia Irungu whose contract the KPC board chose not to extend for a further three years.
Sang rejoined KPC three months ago as Ag. Managing Director after a Nairobi court cleared him of a Ksh.1.9 billion graft charge.
“The KPC Board anticipates that Mr. Sang will continue to lead the organization to surpass its former stellar performance,” said KPC Board Chair Faith Bett Boinnet in a statement announcing Sang’s appointment.
“Joe has been instrumental in implementing the Company’s strategy that has seen KPC grow its revenue portfolio and evolve from being primarily an oil company to a multi-venture oil and gas company firmly in Fiber Optic Cabling (FOC), Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) distribution and sectoral training through its Morendat Institute of Oil and Gas (MIOG), among others.”
Sang has previously worked with WHO-KEMRI as a Project Economist, Financial Accountant with National Oil Corporation of Kenya (NOCK), Management Accountant with Unga Limited, Head of Finance for East African Breweries Limited (EABL) Subsidiary.
He has also served as the Head of Group Performance and Reporting for East African Breweries Limited (EABL) Group, General Manager Finance & Strategy with KPC and later Managing Director in April 2016.
Sang holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Strategic Management, both from the University of Nairobi.
Joe Sang is also a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and Member of the Institute of Public Certified Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK).
