Al Khaliji Commercial Bank PQSC (al khaliji) has announced the appointment of two Qatari executives to senior leadership roles under its ongoing Qatarisation programme.
Omar Al Emadi and Hassan Al Jaidah were both promoted and appointed to lead the bank’s strategic business development efforts and verticals. Al Emadi, previously Head of Corporate Banking at al khaliji, will now be managing the bank’s growing portfolio and customer base, and spearheading its growth initiatives and strategies as Group Chief Business Officer. Hassan Al Jaidah was appointed Head of Premium Banking, where he will be tasked with the division’s expansion and diversification into new customer segments and offerings.
al khaliji Group CEO Fahad Al Khalifa said they are immensely proud to see their Qatarisation programme bear fruit with this new leadership for their group.
When we first launched this programme, it was under a national vision to empower and equip Qatari talent with the tools and skillset to not only keep pace with the financial sector, but more so, to take its reins as its future leaders and decision-makers.
Our motive was the potential we saw in each Qatari talent who joined our organisation. And our focus has since been on unleashing it to broaden their horizons and ours, with the build up of a robust local talent pool that is ready and able to shape and achieve our strategic vision, and to contribute to Qatar’s 2030 ambition toward a knowledge-based, sustainable economy.’
Al khaliji has achieved a 100% Qatarisation among its branch managers, and is investing both efforts and resources into growing its quota of Qatari talent across its divisions and organisational structure. The bank is also actively supporting Qatari talent outside of its organisation, having taken part in the Tawteen talent localisation programme as one of its main sponsors, and in Qatar University’s annual career fair, among many other initiatives.
