Bahrain's Batelco names new chairman

Bahrain-based telecoms group Batelco has appointed Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa as its new chairman following the resignation this week of Sheikh Hamad bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, who served as chairman of the company since 2006.

Prior to his resignation, which was accepted on Wednesday, Sheikh Hamad played a key role in furthering Batelco’s position as a major player within the telecommunications sector in Bahrain and abroad, according to the firm.

Sheikh Mohammed served as a previous board member of Batelco as well as Gulf Air. He also served as president of Customs Affairs at Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior and Assistant Undersecretary for Financial, Administrative and Minor’s Estate Affairs at the Ministry of Justice and Islamic Affairs.
