Following Kendi Ntwiga’s exit as Microsoft Kenya’s Country Manager a couple of months ago, Microsoft has appointed Phyllis Migwi as the new Kenya Country Manager. Phyllis has an excellent track record as a leader and a business catalyst known for driving growth in technology over the last two decades. She’s vastly experienced in strategy and operations leadership, brand development, marketing and program management.

The newly appointed manager replaces Kendi Ntwiga, who has since left for Meta as the Global Head of Misrepresentation for the social media giant that owns Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
