Steering The Future, James Mwaura Takes Charge Of KICC


A Fresh Perspective On KICC’s Future Under Mwaura’s Guidance

Nairobi, March 26, 2024The Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) is abuzz with anticipation as James Mwaura assumes the role of Chief Executive Officer. His appointment, announced by Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary Dr. Alfred Mutua, marks a turning point for this iconic institution.

Mwaura brings over 19 years of expertise to the table, spanning finance, accounting, banking, administration, and corporate governance. His impressive credentials include an MBA in Finance, a BBA in Accounting and Finance, an LLB, and CPA and CPS certifications. But it’s not just his qualifications that set him apart; it’s his vision for KICC’s future.

“Mwaura will be tasked with spearheading Kenya’s conference tourism and positioning the destination globally as a preferred meetings destination of choice,” said Cabinet Secretary Mutua. Indeed, KICC, with its capacity to hold over 10,000 delegates, is poised to become a hub for international conferences, incentives, travel, and exhibitions (MICE).

James steps into the shoes left vacant by Nana Gecaga, who led KICC for seven remarkable years. Gecaga’s tenure saw the centre evolve into a beacon of excellence, hosting world-class events and fostering global connections. As she bids farewell, Mwaura inherits a legacy of innovation, collaboration, and unwavering commitment.

Mwaura’s dual experience in both the public and private sectors positions him perfectly to steer KICC toward new horizons. His mission? To translate conference tourism into tangible revenue growth. “His extensive knowledge of MICE matters will enable him to enhance the corporation’s competitiveness,” emphasized Mutua.

As the sun rises over Nairobi, James Mwaura stands at the helm of KICC, ready to write the next chapter. The city’s skyline, a testament to resilience and progress, mirrors the journey ahead. With Mwaura’s leadership, KICC is set to shine brighter, drawing delegates, innovators, and dreamers from every corner of the globe.

James Mwaura’s appointment isn’t just a changing of the guard; it’s a promise of transformation. As the world looks to KICC, we can’t help but wonder: What groundbreaking conferences, life-changing connections, and awe-inspiring moments lie ahead? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: James Mwaura is steering KICC toward a future that will live long in the Kenyan records.

Go Places Digital joins other stakeholders in wishing James Mwaura all the best as He embarks on showcasing Kenya’s hidden gem to the world, and propelling KICC to greater heights.
