KUWAIT , December 4, 2023
Burgan Bank has announced the appointment of Naqeeb Amin, as the General Manager of Human Resources and Development for the group.
Joining the bank at an important moment of transformation, Amin will spearhead the Bank’s expansive human capital development efforts; crafting long-term strategies to attract, retain, and foster top national talent across the organisation.
Following a series of top-level appointments and promotions across Burgan Bank in the past few months, this latest move seeks to further strengthen the bank’s senior leadership team with some of the industry’s best talents.
Earlier this year, the bank unveiled a new strategy and transformation roadmap, gearing Burgan towards becoming the most modern and progressive bank in Kuwait, with a core focus on its human capital. Burgan Bank is also continuing its focus on Kuwaitisation, especially at the leadership level, and this appointment will further support these nationalisation efforts.
Fadel Mahmoud Abdullah, Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) – Kuwait, said: “As we move ahead in our transformation journey, we are fully aware that our employees are at the heart of everything that we do: they will drive our transformation and realise the bank’s vision. Therefore, it is vital that we have the right leaders in place to shape and guide our human capital development efforts. Amin, a seasoned professional and a well-recognised expert in the field of change management, will be instrumental in achieving our culture transformation goals and further position Burgan Bank as an employer of choice within Kuwait’s banking sector.”
Amin is an accomplished professional, having held numerous leadership positions across various sectors and industries, including banking, telecommunications, technology, petrochemicals, and medical. With more than 26 years of experience in Human Resources, he is an expert in the field of change management with a proven track record of successful culture transformation. He joined Burgan Bank from Ahli United Bank of Kuwait (AUB), where he was the General Manager of Human Resources, and his most recent focus was on leading HR transformation projects and employee engagement programmes.--TradeArabia News Service
