Deutsche Bank has announced that Mounir Husseini has been appointed as chief country officer for the United Arab Emirates.
He has been with the firm for the last two years, joining it in 2007 and leaving behind Daimler AG where he was a managing director and had served for over a decade.
In addition to this Husseini also becomes general manager of the firm’s Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) branch.
Husseini succeeds Ricardo Honegger, who formerly held both posts but is now retiring.
He will retain his posts as chief country officer for Qatar and general manager of the Qatar Financial Centre branch, and reports directly to Henry Azzam, chief executive officer for the Middle East and North Africa.
Azzam has described Husseini as instrumental in Deutsche Bank’s efforts in Qatar, and expressed delight at his appointment in the UAE.
