KUALA LUMPUR: Al Rajhi Bank Malaysia has appointed Marlene Kaur as its corporate affairs director and Mo Khurram Zia as the transformation and change management chief.

In a statement on Friday, chief executive officer Arsalaan Ahmed said the appointments are a testament to the bank’s commitment to increase its market presence locally, where it has a strategic advantage in terms of Islamic banking.

"As the bank embarks on a journey of growth, we are making tactical moves to capture the exciting opportunities in Islamic banking, and we will continue to invest in our people and technology that are in line with our goals.

"The addition of Marlene and Mo to the executive committee adds to the existing strength of the senior leadership team,” he said, adding that the new appointees will play a role in advancing Al Rajhi Bank’s ambition to be the number one foreign Islamic bank in Malaysia.

Marlene has more than 20 years of global corporate affairs experience in communications, strategic planning, stakeholder engagement and public affairs, and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Organisational Communications from Western Michigan University, United States.

Prior to joining Al Rajhi Bank Malaysia, Mo was the head of People Operations at AirAsia, where he established people processes using collaborative digital platforms and cloud-based technology, resulting in a more cost-effective people function. - Bernama
