To reassert its commitment to provide customers with state-of-the-art services and as part of the ongoing transformation journey, Doha Bank has announced the appointment of three members of its executive management team.
The appointment of Braik al-Marri as chief retail banking officer falls in line with Doha Bank’s Qatarisation strategy and a culture to grow and promote talent from within. Al-Marri, who held previously the role of acting chief retail banking officer, will undertake the role of spearheading the bank’s retail business to further accelerate retail transformation strategy and inspire sustainable growth with added-value for customers.
Al-Marri brings over three decades of banking experience leadership focused on clients, business growth, operational excellence, and commitment to building strong communities.
He has risen through the ranks from branch line management and brings a granular and solid understanding of the business. Previously, he has held various leadership roles across Sales, Segment, Channel and Product management with organisations like Mashreq Bank, QNB, and QIB.
His wealth of knowledge and expertise in strategic planning and financial management will help accelerate Doha Bank’s retail growth and strengthen the performance of its retail banking business. To help the bank in its quest of taking the Wholesale Banking Department to the next level of excellence, Doha Bank appointed Ala Abumughli as chief wholesale banking officer.
Abumughli, who holds an MBA in Islamic Finance from Hamad Bin Khalifa University, comes to Doha Bank with a demonstrated track record of over 25 years in multiple leadership positions in the Middle East and Asia with Barwa Bank, Union National Bank, The Islamic Bank of Asia, and Qatar National Bank.
His longstanding experience in business development within the banking industry, his experience in digitalising the business, coupled with a firm grasp on the GCC market, will be instrumental in taking wholesale banking growth and customer experience to the next level, bringing a fresh set of value propositions and overall perspective to balancing business growth through the optimum mix of fee and interest income.
He is passionate with his CSR activities and was previously nominated as a qualified instructor/trainer to run banking and marketing courses at Whales University, Qatar, Institute of Administrative Development, Qatar Banking Training Institute, and Arab Academy of Banking and Financial Services.
The hiring of Peter John Clark as chief operating officer corresponds with Doha Bank’s strategy to bring people with extensive global experience and first-class expertise in the banking industry.
