Citigroup appoints CEO for Saudi Arabia

Carmen Haddad, who is also CEO for the bank’s Qatar operations, has been chosen as Citigroup continues advanced talks for an investment banking licence with Saudi Arabia’s Capital Market Authority.

Citigroup has appointed Carmen Haddad as chief executive officer (CEO) with responsibility for developing its business in Saudi Arabia, according to reports. The group is also said to be in advanced discussions with Saudi Arabia’s Capital Market Authority for an investment-banking licence to operate in the country. Citigroup lost a key banking licence when it sold its stake in Samba Financial Group in 2004.

Haddad leads Citigroup’s strategy and business development for the kingdom and her appointment as CEO for Saudi Arabia is expected to be made official once the group’s banking licence from the market regulator is confirmed. In the interim, she will continue in her role as CEO of Citigroup’s Qatar operations until a replacement is found and will also retain her position as a senior private banker in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, Egypt and the Levant.
