Designation: Salah Murad, CEO
Salah Murad has now spent three decades working in the Gulf’s commercial banking sector, including four years as chief executive of Ahli Bank, a position to which he was reappointed in January. The result has been an impressive set of figures, which show that Ahli Bank had increased their half-year profit by 11.8 percent to $83m (QR302.7m), up from $74.3m (QR 270.7m) over the same period last year.
Murad says they’re a reflection of the bank’s policies, which has placed it in the top three banks in Qatar.
“I think the story here is that we are consistent in our performance, [we have] a strong profit growth, and has continued in 2013, and 2014 looks like, if it continues the same, we should be closing the year on a positive note.”
