Jeremy Awori Steps Down as Absa Kenya Boss

Jeremy Awori stepped down from his role at Absa after nearly 10 years. “I am confident that Absa Kenya
will scale greater heights going into the future. I thank the Board of Absa Kenya PLC and Absa Group for

the opportunity and pay special tribute to Absa Kenya staff and customers for the honour to serve,” Mr
Awori said. The bank has however commenced the process of looking for a suitable replacement for Mr
Awori and would announce after the process is done including regulatory approval.
His leadership efforts were lauded by Absa Bank chairman Charles Muchene who noted Awori’s
contribution towards driving significant growth of Absa Bank.
“Mr Awori has been instrumental in driving significant growth and transformation of our business over
the past decade and under his outstanding leadership, Absa Bank Kenya PLC has evolved into a modern-
day business that all our stakeholders can be proud of,” Mr Muchene said. The outgoing CEO has served
Absa since his appointment in February 2013 and oversaw the lender’s successful transformation from
Barclays Bank of Kenya.
