GHANA – The Managing Director of Guinness Ghana Breweries Limited (GGBL), Mr Peter Waititu Ndegwa, will leave his position with effect from July 20, 2015, to take up the Chief Executive Officer position at Guinness Nigeria Plc, another Diageo subsidiary.
A release from Guinness Ghana said Mr Ndegwa was appointed managing director of GGBL in September 2011 when he joined the business from East Africa Breweries Limited.
“He has ably overseen a complete “reframe” of GGBL despite very challenging external operating conditions.
He holds an MBA from the London Business School and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Nairobi and is also a qualified accountant,” it said.
The release described Mr Ndegwa as an effective and accomplished business leader with a proven track record in strategic and commercial leadership spanning over 20 years and excels in orchestrating strategic change, driving organisational and team alignment and building momentum around business priorities and delivering superior business results.
It said he leveraged both his ‘natural’ authenticity and strong diverse experience across a set of functional areas (strategy, sales, finance, consulting) to create impetus in organisations and teams. He has been particularly successful in creating highly engaged teams and organisations.
The release said Mr Ndegwa’s successor would be the subject of a future announcement.
