Ithmaar chief honoured
Manama, September 9, 2013
Dar Al Maal Al Islami (DMI) Trust, Ithmaar Bank's largest shareholder, hosted a reception for members of the group's senior management at the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain Hotel and Spa to honour Mohammed Bucheerei, who retired last month.
Bucheerei, who concluded a more than 43-year international banking career when he retired at the end of last month was the DMI chief operating officer, as well as the Ithmaar Bank chief executive, reported the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
DMI group chief executive Khalid Janahi thanked Bucheerei for his contributions to the group's success and wished him a pleasant retirement. "Mohammed has played many key roles in many of the group's subsidiaries and associates around the world over the past 22 years," said Janahi.
"Throughout his career at the group, he has demonstrated exceptional commitment and dedication, often sacrificing his personal time and that of his family, for his many work responsibilities. His selfless sacrifice and unwavering focus have contributed both to his professional success and to that of the group."
"The fact that so many senior executives from across the group took the time to fly to Bahrain specifically to help honour Mohammed is testimony to the key role he has played within the group over the years," he added.
Bucheerei said it was a privilege and an honour to serve the group, as well as its subsidiaries and associates around the world, for so many years. "In particular, leading Ithmaar Bank's transformation into an Islamic retail bank has been, in many ways, the highlight of my career," he said. - TradeArabia News Service
