Why we celebrate, recommend ICEA Lion General Insurance Company

From various reports, in-house research and in the manner ICEA Lion General Insurance Company (ILGIC) recently handled and resolved a long standing dispute between the insured and the complainant in a motor-vehicle accident, almost 10 years, we at Cofek unreservedly recommend the ILGIC to Kenyan consumers.

The reason we do this is out the of the pervading sense of frustrations many consumers face when interacting with insurance companies. Majority of them exist to only collect premiums. Compensation is a completely different ballgame.

While at it, we want to highly commend the humble but highly professional ILGIC CEO Mr Philip Lopokoyit and his equally professional team that includes Ms Jane Muiru.

Lopokoyit joined the firm on September 20, 2021 when he replaced Paul Muthaura

“Philip brings over 20 years of commercial and financial leadership expertise to the role. He is a seasoned Commercial and Market Transformation Expert with both executive and non-executive Board Member experience,” his chairman James Ndegwa had observed then.

Mr Lopokoyit offered in companies as diverse as Flamingo Horticulture Kenya and British American Tobacco (in both East and Central Africa, West Africa and Nigeria)having begun his professional career at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

He also carried responsibilities of a Non-Executive Director in various NCBA and NIC Group entities within Kenya and Uganda, as well as on the Boards of CIC Insurance Group and CIC Asset Management.

He holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Warwick Business School, United Kingdom and a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting from the University of Nairobi.
