Doha Bank has appointed three new executive management members as part of its ongoing transformation journey, the bank announced in a statement on Saturday.
Doha Bank has appointed Braik Almarri as Chief Retail Banking Officer, Ala Abumughli as Chief Wholesale Banking Officer, and Peter Clark as Chief Operating Officer.
The appointment of Braik falls in line with Doha bank’s Qatarisation strategy and a culture to grow and promote talent from within.
Braik, who held previously the role of acting chief retail banking officer, will undertake the role of spearheading the bank’s retail business, to further accelerate retail transformation strategy and inspire sustainable growth with added-value for customers.
Braik brings over three decades of banking experience leadership focused on clients, business growth, operational excellence and commitment to building strong communities.
He has risen through the ranks from branch line management and brings a granular and solid understanding of the business.
Previously, he has held various leadership roles across sales, segment, channel and product management with organisations like Mashreq Bank, QNB and QIB.
His wealth of knowledge and expertise in strategic planning and financial management will help accelerate Doha Bank’s retail growth and strengthen the performance of its retail banking business.
Ala, who holds an MBA in Islamic Finance from Hamad Bin Khalifa University, comes to Doha Bank with demonstrated track record of over 25 years in multiple leadership positions in Middle East and Asia with Barwa Bank, Union National Bank, The Islamic Bank of Asia and Qatar National Bank.
His long-standing experience in business development within the banking industry, his experience in digitalising the business coupled with a firm grasp on the GCC market, will be instrumental in taking wholesale banking growth and customer experience to the next level.
The appointment of Clark as Chief Operating Officer corresponds with Doha Bank’s strategy to bring people with extensive global experience and first-class expertise in the banking industry.
Clark will be responsible for shaping and building the global growth and development of Doha Bank’s leading operational practices and lead the digital transformation in bringing innovative technology based solutions to deliver best in class value propositions to the market.
Clark, who holds BS in Electrical Engineering from Sussex University in the UK, comes to Doha Bank with extensive global experience of over 33 years in holding multiple executive-level positions around the world with organisations such as HSBC and Standard Chartered Bank.
Dr R Seetharaman, CEO at Doha Bank, said, “We are thrilled to have Braik, Ala, and Peter on board with us. Their exceptional knowledge in their respective areas of expertise, their demonstrated ability to harvest the limitless options this market has to offer, and their strong winning attitudes and personalities, are key assets that will complement and enhance our ability to meet the needs of our customers as we continue to provide them with quality and innovative products as part of Doha Bank’s transformation journey.”
