NBK's Isam al-Sager to receive Annual Award for Distinguished Service from Arab Bankers Association
We will present our annual Award for Distinguished Service to Arab Banking to Mr. Isam al-Sager, the Group Chief Executive Officer of National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) at our Gala Dinner on 23 October.
George Kanaan, our Chief Executive, said, "We are delighted to be able to honour Mr. Isam al-Sager for his long and distinguished service to Arab banking. Through his hard work and leadership, Mr. Sager has led NBK's growth in the Middle East and beyond, establishing it as a truly regional and international bank. He has also led NBK's pioneering work in the field of digital banking, an area where Arab banks are now able to compete with, and sometime go beyond, the efforts of western institutions."
The keynote speech at this year's Gala Dinner will be given by Lord Hill of Oareford, a former Leader of the House of Lords who was until recently the European Commissioner for Financial Stability, based in Brussels.
The Arab Bankers Association's annual Gala Dinner is the flagship event for London's Arab banking community, attracting nearly 300 guests from the UK and the Middle East. It attracts not only Arab bankers from London and the Middle East, but also law firms, accounting firms, private investors, and trade organisations that work with Arab banks and investors in London.
