Hassan Jarrar, the chief executive officer of Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB), was recently named ‘Best Banking CEO - Bahrain’ by International Finance Magazine (IFM).
This award was given to Jarrar in recognition of the instrumental role he has played in the growth and development of the banking sector.
Since taking over the leadership of BisB, Jarrar has dedicated his efforts to enhance BisB’s position in the finance industry; he has successfully established noteworthy partnerships while keeping the bank in tune with the latest industry trends, and driving digitization in order to transform the customer experience and simplify their lives.
“I am truly honoured to have won this award. This is a recognition of all the effort and hard work of the entire BisB team so this award goes to them. I am merely an ambassador,” stated Jarrar.
The IFM award recognises exceptional individuals and institutions that have achieved high standards of innovation and have contributed to raising the bar across a variety of fields, including business and finance, real estate, telecom, and oil and gas.
In April 2018, Jarrar was named Top CEO for 2018 and was selected from among 100 CEOs from the region’s publicly listed companies, at an event organized by Trends magazine and Insead, a leading international business school. -TradeArabia News Service
