Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank has announced the appointment of Mazin Manna as its new Group CEO, after obtaining UAE Central Bank approval.

Manna brings 28 years of experience in international banking, having previously been the CEO for the Middle East and North Africa at Credit Agricole and group senior country officer for the UAE.

Previously, Mazin spent 24 years with Citi, where he served as the CEO for Bahrain from 2010 to 2015, overseeing the bank’s corporate, investment and consumer banking businesses.

Jawaan Awaidha Suhail Al Khaili, ADIB’s chairman, said: "The board of directors and I are delighted that Mazin Manna will be joining ADIB to continue our trajectory of strong growth and lead the bank as we carry out a transformation strategy to enhance our customers’ experience, and to widen and deepen our comprehensive retail and corporate banking offering.

"His extensive experience and expertise will push ADIB’s strategy forward, ensuring that we continue to create value for our customers, employees and investors, as well as contributing fully to the further development of the UAE economy.”

Khamis Buharoon, who has been acting CEO since March 2017, will return to his role as vice chairman.

Manna said: “ADIB is a strong and well-established bank with exceptional brand recognition and a strong footprint across retail and corporate banking. We aim to build on the success already achieved by providing our customers with an unmatched customer experience, depth of product, value added services, and enhancing shareholder value, as well as helping to drive the development of a deep and diverse economy in the UAE."
