Shantilal Shah (1954 - 1956)

I completed my Senior Cambridge at the ESS in 1956 and joined an insurance company as an Accounts Assistant and worked my way up the ladder to become Assistant Accountant, Chief Accountant, Company Secretary and in 1970 the Principal Officer and Attorney of the Corporation. In 1980, when the General Accident and Insurance Company was formed, I was appointed the Managing Director. Since 1989, I have the Chairman and Managing Director of the company. As a part of my development, I completed the Senior Executives Management programme at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, U.S.A. in 1989.

I have been busy in the social and voluntary field as well. I have chaired the Visa Oshwal Community, the MP Shah Hospital Board, the Supreme Council of Shah Community and the World Oshwal Federation. I have chaired Nairobi Gymkhana Club and Royal Nairobi Golf Club.

My major achievement has been the construction and consecration of the Jain Temple in Nairobi, a unique piece of architecture, built of marble, where no nails or iron was used. In addition, a modern primary school was built and donated to the people of Kabarnet with all the furniture and fittings. I have captained the Kenya Bridge team in 1980. My mission in life is to use all my knowledge, expertise and resources to help the less fortunate members of our society.
