Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) has extended Rebecca Miano’s term as Managing Director by another three years.
In a statement, Board chairman Joshua Choge says “During Mrs. Miano’s three-year tenure, 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,” he said.
Miano had taken over as CEO of the listed power generator in November 2017 replacing Albert Mugo who retired on Friday 25th August 2017.
Miano became the first woman to hold the position since the company was established on 1 February 1954.
According to the Board, through her “exemplary performance”, the company has been able to pay dividends of KSh2.6 billion to shareholders for the financial year 2018, followed by the successful final redemption of the listed KenGen Public infrastructure Bond in October 2019.
She holds a Bachelor of Law Degree (LLB) from the University of Nairobi, Diploma in Law (Kenya School of Law) and Post Graduate Studies in Comparative Law (University of Australia). She is a Registered Certified Public Secretary Kenya (CPS –K) with the Registration of Public Secretaries Board.
