KUALA LUMPUR: Kuwait Finance House (M) Bhd (KFH Malaysia), the first foreign Islamic bank in the country, is looking to re-energise itself by appointing six new senior executives.
The new line-up reflects “the significant support” of the parent company, Kuwait Finance House KSC in Kuwait, to the growth of the bank in Malaysia, it said in a statement on Thursday.
“Together with the recent appointment of chief executive officer David Power last year, the bank is confident its business interests in the country will enter a new chapter in achieving aspirations as a premier provider of Islamic products and services to all customers in Malaysia,” the bank said.
The new faces include chief strategy, PMO and communications officer Momtaz M. Saif, chief retail banking officer Julio Francis Lobo, chief credit officer Khalid Jaafar, business performance & analytics director Mark Peile, business process reengineering & innovation director Liu Shoua Fan, and sales and distribution director Dilip D.S.
Speaking about the new line-up, Power said: “I look forward to KFH Malaysia taking its rightful place in providing best possible Islamic products and services to our customers.”
KFH Malaysia began operations on Aug 8, 2005.
