Strathmore Business School’s Master in Business Administration alumnus, Maurice Toroitich was recently appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of Bank Populaire du Rwanda (BPR), the largest bank in Rwanda by customer base and branch network.

Kenyan born Maurice Toroitich has over 20 years’ experience in retail and corporate banking: He previously worked for Stanbic Bank (formerly, CfC Stanbic Bank) and as the Managing Director of KCB Bank Rwanda, a subsidiary of Kenya Commercial Bank Limited.

Commenting on his appointment, Toroitich is set to further initiatives on product development, innovation and digitisation to enhance efficiency in service delivery.

I take this opportunity to wish him all the best upon his new appointment,” said the outgoing chief executive officer, Sanjeev Anand.
