in a recent announcement, Faith Bett Boinett, board chair of the Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC), confirmed Joe Sang’s appointment as managing director after a competitive recruitment process. This marks a significant development in the company’s leadership, as Sang returns to the helm after a successful tenure from 2016 to 2018.
Boinett extolled the virtues of Sang’s past performance at KPC in her statement, noting that his brief yet highly effective leadership led to a transformation in the management and performance of the State Corporation. As a member of the KPC board during Sang’s prior tenure, Boinett has firsthand knowledge of the dramatic rise in the company’s profitability under his guidance.
Sang’s initial leadership at KPC began in 2016, and within just two years, the company reached a record-breaking Profit Before Tax of KES12.4 billion (KES8.6 Billion after tax) in 2018 – the highest profit in the company’s 50-year history. Boinett’s announcement underscores the importance of this achievement and the high expectations for Sang’s return.
Joe Sang reentered the KPC three months ago as the acting managing director, and this confirmation cements his position, paving the way for a new era of leadership at the Kenya Pipeline Company. As stakeholders eagerly anticipate the impact of Sang’s visionary management, there is a palpable sense of optimism surrounding the future of KPC.
