Nation media group CEO Joe Muganda is set to be the new managing director at Vivo energy.

The position was initially held by the now Nairobi deputy governor Polycarp Igathe.

Muganda will officially take up his new role in early 2018 at the wake of vivo energy acquisition of Engen operations in Kenya and nine other African countries.

Muganda has been at the helm of Nation Media Group for three years after taking over from Linus Gitahi on 0July 2015.

This is seen as another big win for media industry just months after business editor Wallace Kantai was appointed as head of communications at the central bank of Kenya.

Joe Muganda holds a MBA from Leicester University and Bachelor of Science (economics, accounting and financial management) from university of Buckingham(UK)
