Al Khaliji Commercial Bank (Al Khaliji) has announced the appointment of two Qatari executives to senior leadership roles in the organisation under its ongoing talent 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.
Al-Jaidah was appointed as head of Premium Banking, where he will be tasked with the division’s expansion and diversification into new customer segments and offerings.
Fahad al-Khalifa, group CEO of Al Khaliji, said, “We are immensely proud to see our Qatarisation programme and efforts bear fruit with this new leadership for our 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 that joined our organisation. And our focus has since been on unleashing it to broaden their horizons and ours, with the buildup 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 target 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.
