Sebastian Mikosz takes over the reigns as Kenya Airways CEO

The Kenya Airways (KQ) board has appointed Sebastian Mikosz as the new Group Managing director and chief executive officer.

He takes over from Mbuvi Ngunze who had stated his intention to step down from the national carrier back in October.

Mikosz’s appointment ends a rather long and rigorous recruitment process that had on two occasions been delayed.

The new Kenya Airways CEO will take up his post on June 1.

The incoming CEO is currently the head of e sky, a travel agency based in Poland but has previously served as the President and CEO OF LOT Polish Airlines.

Kenya Airways chairman Michael Joseph said the new CEO will have his work cut out, in trying to steer the airline back to profitability after years of turbulence.

“We have no doubt that under his leadership and guidance the airline, with support of management and the board will strive to greater heights and achievements as well as continue to regain its altitude as the pride of Africa,” Mr Joseph said.
