In its meeting held, the Board of Directors of National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) elected Nasser Musaed Al-Sayer as the Chairman of NBK Group following the demise of the long-serving Chairman Mohammad Abdul Rahman Al-Bahar.
The Board also elected Ghassan Ahmed Saoud Al-Khalid as the Vice Chairman. The Reserve Member Emad Mohammad Abdul Rahman Al-Bahar joined the Board of Directors.
“NBK will continue with its current strategy that was developed under the leadership of the late Mohammad Al-Bahar,” said Al-Sayer.
“Al-Bahar was one of the founders of NBK in 1952. Since he joined the Board of Directors in 1959 and was appointed as a Chairman in 1993, he had played a major role in transforming the bank into one of the leading institutions in the Arab world.”
