Mr Peter Kanaiya has been appointed the chairman of the Postal Corporation of Kenya (PCK) board of directors for a period of three years. He takes over the chairmanship of the corporation following the passing on of the former board Chairman Mr. Njoroge Mungai in January this year. His appointment was announced by Cabinet Secretary for ICT, Innovation and Youth Affairs Mr. Joe Mucheru via Kenya Gazette Notice No 8267 of 15th July 2022.
Mr. Kanaiya is an accomplished corporate executive with over fifteen years’ experience in information communication technology ( ICT) development and data management consultancy. He has previously served as a board member of several state corporations, including the Betting Control and Licensing Board. Speaking after being introduced to the corporation’s senior management staff by Postmaster General Mr Dan Kagwe, Mr Kinaiya urged them to embrace new and emerging technology in order to remain relevant in the increasingly competitive post Covid-19 era.
He emphasized that the corporation was at a vantage position to reclaim its space as the preferred logistics and e- commerce organization not only in Kenya but in the greater East African region. “By embracing ICT and cutting-edge technology, PCK will hopefully get back to its glory days as the preferred logistics partner in Kenya,” he said.
