05 Dec 2012 - UAB sets benchmarks for employing more Emiratis at Executive Level

December 5 2012, Dubai, UAE: United Arab Bank (UAB), UAE’s fastest growing bank has a long heritage of fostering managerial excellence amongst UAE Nationals who are the cornerstone of the country’s progress. UAB has consistently offered a platform to talented banking professionals from the local population. Following on from the appointment of the first UAE Female Banking Director earlier this year, the Bank has recently appointed Yusra Abdul Ghaffar and Faisal Al Najjar to the Strategic roles of Head of Branches & Islamic Banking and Head of Liabilities respectively and has also appointed eight new local Branch Managers in 2012.

Paul Trowbridge, Chief Executive Officer of United Arab Bank, said: “United Arab Bank offers an avenue for talented Nationals to consolidate their expertise in managerial positions. This approach falls in line with the stated goals of the UAE government’s declaration of 2013 as the year of Emiratisation; which the authorities intend to achieve through joining forces and uniting energies of like-minded organizations like UAB as well as other private and public sector enterprises. The Bank intends to open 10 more branches next year, all of which will be managed by UAE Nationals.
