East Africa’s largest telco, Safaricom has recruited an executive from the region’s largest beer brewer EABL, Paul Kasimu, to lead its Human Resources Division.
Kasimu has been a Human Resources Director at EABL for six years before agreeing to switch camp to Safaricom. He has also served in a similar capacity at Kenya Airways, as well as in senior roles at Barclays Bank in Botswana and the United Kingdom, prior to his time at EABL.
He is expected to resume his new role on Monday, 3rd of July, Safaricom told Business Daily Africa.
“He is a mature and seasoned human resource professional with a wealth of experience having worked with big companies locally and internationally,” the Telco added.
Kasimu replaces Mrs Maria Shipiri who reportedly left Safaricom earlier in the year to focus on her personal career goals.
