SUMMARY

I am currently acting Vice-Chancellor, Egerton University where I hold the substantive position of Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Administration, Planning and Development at the Egerton University. In this capacity, I am responsible for General capacity building, the human resource function, delivery of the strategic plan and performance contracting of the University. I have variously initiated and/or guided development and implementation of the strategic plan for 2018-2023 and policies of the University.

I am on unpaid leave of absence from the University of Nairobi where I serve as a Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry in the School of Pharmacy. I have published widely in my discipline.

During May 2007- May 2017, I successfully served as the Principal of College of Health Sciences, University of Nairobi where I was the Academic Research, Financial and Administrative head of the college. The College comprises the Schools of; Medicine, Pharmacy, Dental Siences, Nursing Sciences and Public Health, the University of Nairobi Institute of Tropical and Infectious Dieases, KAVI-Institute of Clinical Research, the East Africa Kidney Institute and the Centre for HIV/Aids Research and Prevention. I was responsible for all research activities at the College ensuring compliance to project objectives and prudent utilization of resources per approved budgets. I competently handled College responsibilities and guided its expansion and excellent performance culminating in it being awarded a Shield as ''Center of Excellence in the Health Sciences'' by the East African Community in 2014. Further, research funding grew about four times and the College had a continuous level of ‘Excellent performance’ in performance contracting amongst the six colleges of the University.

I have held various positions in the Pharmaceutical Society of Kenya including the Chairmanship for a period of 6 years. I have broad experience in the pharmaceutical regulatory systems locally and internationally, and specifically in the quality control and quality assurance of medicines. Due to my commitment and exemplary pharmaceutical services, I was awarded the “Head of State Commendation“ and the Pharmaceutical Society of Kenya conferred on me the title of “Fellow of the Pharmaceutical Society of Kenya''.

I have a demonstrated strong performance on Governance in institutions where I have chaired the Board or been a member.

In conclusion, I have a record of a successful, resourceful, competent and productive leader well prepared and capable of shouldering any responsibility entrusted to me.
