KenGen renews MD Rebecca Miano’s contract for three years
KenGen has renewed Rebecca Miano’s contract for her position as Managing Director and CEO for another three years.
A statement from the power generation company said the decision follows a rigorous evaluation process.
“During Mrs. Miano’s three-year tenure at the helm of KenGen, the Company has continued on an upward growth trajectory, consistently reporting good corporate financial performance despite a difficult operating environment that has affected many other businesses globally,” KenGen Board Chairman Joshua Choge said.
According to him, Mrs. Miano has passionately led the company’s diversification strategy, a move that has seen the organisation be awarded two multi-million shilling geothermal drilling and consultancy contracts in Ethiopia.
He said this has opened new opportunities for the company, further entrenching its expertise in geothermal energy.
“In pursuit of the company’s capacity expansion, Mrs. Miano has turned KenGen into a geothermal powerhouse in Africa,” Mr. Choge added.
He noted that Kenya is the 7th largest geothermal energy producer in the world and the leader in the continent.
The Board Chairman further averred that geothermal energy generation, as a key green energy resource, has greatly contributed towards building the country’s green energy capacity.
This with more than 80% of electricity generated by KenGen resulting from renewable sources, namely geothermal, hydro and wind.
