Manama, July 17, 2014
Deloitte has appointed Zahi Zeini, an audit and advisory partner with more than 20 years Middle Easter experience, to lead the firm’s Bahrain practice.
Zeini, a US CPA, has led a large portfolio of audit engagements across various industries consisting for the most part of large banks and financial institutions as well as construction, consumer products, retail, wholesale and distribution, public sector, and agriculture.
The Deloitte Bahrain practice has a long history in the kingdom serving international and local clients.
It began operations in 1955 and offers a large array of professional services in audit, consulting, financial advisory and enterprise risk services.
It is home to the regional ‘Deloitte Islamic Finance Knowledge Center,’ which publishes Islamic Finance thought leadership for the Mena region.
Based on the work of its intelligence and research function, the centre imparts knowledge, skills, and innovation in thought with a view to promoting and implementing change in Islamic finance practices around the world.
Omar Fahoum, chairman and chief executive at Deloitte Middle East, said: “We continue to expand our size and offerings in Bahrain, with the country being at the forefront of Islamic finance and one of the strategic markets in the Middle East region.
“As such, it gives me great pleasure to welcome Zahi Zeini to this new chapter in his long career with Deloitte which will benefit our clients and people in Bahrain”.
