Saudi-born Dr Nahed Taher is the only woman in the Gulf to head up a bank. She is the boss of Gulf One Investment Bank, which she co-founded in 2005. Taher turned down a high powered job with the IMF to return home, eager “to do something for my own country” before being hired as the first woman by NCB.
