Chief Corporate Banking Officer, Bank Muscat
Inspiration: During my early career, I was working with the Internal Audit department at Bank Muscat. I was inspired to join ACCA as I felt that an ACCA qualification would open doors to a lot of exciting career opportunities for me. Being an Accounting Professional, ACCA was the natural choice for me as it was one of the only few Internationally recognized Accounting qualifications. Furthermore, an ACCA Qualification is applicable to all areas of business and it has definitely accelerated my career.
Advocacy: I completed my ACCA in 2004 and became a fellow member in 2009. I am currently part of the Members’ Advisory Committee (MAC) for the Sultanate of Oman and have had a very strong level of engagement with ACCA. At our Bank, we have launched an ACCA Development Program for our staff, under this program Bank Muscat provided employment opportunities to 50 young Omani’s upon successful completion of their ACCA program.
Career: With a rich experience spanning over 26 years, I have worked across different functions and roles including Internal Audit, CEO of International branches, Human Resources, and currently in Corporate banking as the Chief Corporate Banking Officer (CCBO), Bank Muscat. I believe having an ACCA qualification has reaped very good returns for me, helped me grow both professionally and personally.
