FBCG welcomes new chairman

DUBAI, June 14, 2018

The Family Business Council - Gulf (FBCG), a leading membership organisation for GCC family businesses, has announced the appointment of Omar K Alghanim as its new chairman of the Board of Directors.

Alghanim will succeed Abdulaziz Abdulla Al Ghurair, the founder of the organisation who served as chairman of the board since April 2013. Al Ghurair will continue to sit on the board to support the organisation and provide advisory support on the strategic direction.

Al Ghurair said: “We are proud of the Family Business Council – Gulf’s accomplishments over the last five years. With the support of the Board of Directors and FBCG founding members, we have built an organisation capable of effectively addressing the challenges of GCC family businesses.

“With a clear vision in place, an exciting future lies ahead for the organisation. We welcome our new Chairman to continue this journey, and we wish him all the best in shaping the future of FBCG.”

Alghanim, CEO of Alghanim Industries and chairman of Gulf Bank, has served as a board member of FBCG and has been part of the executive committee of the board since the organisation’s establishment in 2013.   

Alghanim said: “I am honoured to have been selected by the FBCG Board of Directors to serve as Chairman, and to work alongside these talented and visionary industry leaders. His Excellency Abdulaziz Abdullah Al Ghurair has left behind a strong and long-lasting legacy, for which we are all grateful. His dedication and leadership have played an instrumental role in successfully launching a productive platform for GCC family businesses. Moving forward, I know we can continue to count on his guidance and support.”

 “We’ve accomplished a lot over the past five years and we’ll be building on these successes as we move ahead. But family businesses represent a significant part of the GCC economy, and if our work has taught us anything, it’s that there are real challenges. To succeed in our mandate, we will maintain a sharp focus on continuity, collaboration, knowledge sharing and fostering strategic relationships among our members,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
