Student Profile: Rose Kinuthia Looks to the Future at KCB Bank in Kenya

Rose Kinuthia, MSRM ’13, is an accomplished banking professional, with a blue-chip background. She is currently chief risk officer of KCB Bank in Nairobi, Kenya, having joined the organization in 2004 as divisional director of risk management. Previously, she worked for the First National Bank of Chicago in Nairobi; New York Life Insurance Company in New York; and Barclays Bank in Nairobi. She holds a BA in Economics and French from the University of Nairobi and an MBA from Adelphi University in New York.

The risks covered in the profile of the NYU program are a perfect match for the risks that I need to cover in my job, and this is one of the things that really attracted me to the program.

In her current position since 2007, Rose has expanded the scope of the bank’s risk management framework to cover enterprise-wide risk and prepared the bank toward Basel II and Basel III readiness. She says risk management gives her “the opportunity to contribute toward building organizational sustainability and strengthening the institutional framework so as to ensure that it is built to last.” She decided to take on the challenge of adding a Master’s Degree in Risk Management to her resumé to deepen her knowledge and acquire best-practice techniques on enterprise-wide risk management.
