Going through previous clips of Dad’s Can Cook; a famous Kenyan TV programme, I came through this clip of a gentleman preparing my favorite dish ‘Shepherd’s Pie’. That was my first encounter with Mr. Peter Nduati, the Founder, Director and CEO of Resolution Insurance (Previously Resolution Health – East Africa Ltd).
It is on record, that Mr. Nduati left a full time paying job at AAR to start Resolution Health without any money at the turn of century. He is therefore one amongst the few, who has constantly challenged their comfort zones and gone the extra mile to achieve their dreams, against a backdrop of doom and despair.
Those who have interacted with Mr. Nduati will tell you, that He is not only full of vision and focus, but he has the guts and confidence to achieve whatever he has set his eyes on. And to prove this, Mr. Nduati is currently in his early 40’s but has so far achieved every man’s dream; in all spheres of his life.
Mr. Nduati is a Masters Degree Holder in Economics and Insurance. He is a Chartered Insurer with over 20 years experience in the Kenyan Insurance Industry. Equally, He is an Entrepreneurship Doctorate Student at Daystar University.
A Mentor with the Greenhorn Mentorship Programme and is also member of the Organizations Board of Advisors. Mr. Peter is also involved in AIESEC (an organization for students interested in Commerce and Business). He is the current Chair of Board of Daystar University’s local chapter. He won the Kenya Alumni Association in 2002 and was shortlisted nominee of the Global alumni of the year 2007. Mr. Nduati is the current Director at First Benefits Ltd, Pine Creek Holdings and Brown Oak Ltd; (an Investment Holding Company). He also sits in the Board of Governors of Dagoretti High School. Before establishing Resolution Health (Now Resolution Insurance), Mr. Peter Nduati was the CEO of Metropolitan Health Group, a South African Health Insurance Group. He was also the Managing Director of AAR Health Services Tanzania.
A father of three children (two girls and a son). Mr. Nduati is not only an enterprising Mogul, but also a passionate man about his family, rugby, music and mentorship. He is former Director of National squads in the Kenya Rugby Football Union. He played rugby for Impala Club in the National League and is the Chairman of the Rugby Club.
‘He is real and a cool guy to work with. He is the best Director one can ever dream working with. Confident, Straightforward, Hardworking, Honest but above all a go getter’….These were the words of one of the employees of Resolution Health who sought anonymity. His parting short however, is what caught my attention, that ‘Mr. Nduati Knows and He Knows that He Knows’….an indication that Mr. Nduati has confidence in all His engagements.
Decision Times wishes to Salute Mr. Nduati for being a real Kenyan role model and a mentor to many aspiring young Kenyan Entrepreneurs. We wish him many many many years of good health and long life in order to continue impacting many Kenyan lives.
