QNB names finance minister as chairman
Dubai, July 7, 2013
Qatar National Bank has appointed the country's finance minister, Ali Shareef al-Emadi, as chairman of its board of directors, the country’s largest lender said in a statement on Sunday.
Emadi was previously QNB's chief executive. Sunday's statement did not disclose whether he still retained this position.
Emadi was appointed finance minister following a cabinet reshuffle in the Gulf Arab state at the end of June after the ascension of Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani as Emir of Qatar. – Reuters
