Al Khalij Commercial Bank (al khaliji) Q.S.C., next generation bank, has appointed Ms. Rana Ahmad Al Asaad as Acting Head of Personal Banking. This step comes in line with the bank’s Qatarization strategy and commitment to Qatar’s National Vision 2030 and to increasing the reliance on talented and qualified Qataris to take on leadership roles in the Banking Sector.
In her capacity as Acting Head of Personal Banking, Ms. Al Assad will be directing and managing al khaliji’s Personal Banking business in line with the Bank’s overall vision, mission and strategy.
Commenting on the executive appointment, al khaliji’s Group Chief Executive Officer Fahad Al Khalifa said, “al khaliji aims to create a strongly qualified and professional Qatari workforce to support the Bank’s growth in the banking sector. We are pleased to see a healthy balance between our external recruitment strategy which brings fresh experience and internal human capital development strategy, both of which will contribute to the Bank’s overall evolution.”
