Nation Media Group Editor-in-Chief Tom Mshindi retires

Mr Tom Mshindi, who has been serving as the Editor-in-Chief of the Nation Media Group (NMG), has retired.

The company’s board announced the retirement of Mr Mshindi, who has also served as an Executive Director with NMG. The retirement takes effect on December 31, 2018.

In a statement signed by NMG Chairman Wilfred Kiboro, the board yesterday described Mr Mshindi as “a loyal, dedicated and highly valued member of the executive team and the Board.”

LEGACY PLATFORM

Mr Mshindi has worked for the leading media company for a total of 24 years, in two stints. He has served in various roles, including as a journalist and later Managing Editor of the Daily Nation, Managing Director of Monitor Publications Ltd (Uganda), Managing Director of Nation Newspapers Division and Chief Operating Officer.

“The board notes with appreciation that he has been a key player as the company embarked on its transformation journey to transition from a purely legacy platform media house into an online first, digital content company of the 21st century,” said Mr Kiboro in the statement.

TRANSITION

“The board is grateful for his dedicated service and wishes him all the best in the coming years.”

Mr Mshindi will continue to serve in the same capacity as the board manages the transition before he exits the company at the end of the year.
