Jeddah, November 19, 2013
NCB Capital, the leading provider of wealth management services in the GCC and Saudi Arabia’s largest asset manager, has appointed Tariq Linjawi as acting CEO.
This follows the decision of Jawdat Al Halabi to leave the firm. Following a successful career over a number of years at both NCB and NCB Capital, Al Halabi is leaving to pursue other career opportunities.
Linjawi, most recently Head of Wealth Management, brings over 10 years of experience in the NCB group, having previously held senior positions in many areas including strategy, consumer, investments, private banking and brokerage.
Mansour Al Maiman, chairman of NCB Capital, said, "We are grateful for the leadership that Jawdat has brought to the firm, helping it to become the largest asset manager in the Kingdom. We wish him well in his future endeavours. I am pleased that his successor comes from within the organisation and offer Tariq our congratulations. He will bring a renewed focus and energy in driving our strategy for further growth." – TradeArabia News Service
