With the long strides Futurebank has taken in the years
since my post here, I look forward to understanding its new
culture, ethos, dynamics as I strive towards taking it
forward. Though my relationship with Futurebank has been for
many years i.e. from July 2004 up to end of September 2006
as a Deputy CEO & then from September 2006 to September 2010
as a non Executive Board Member, the challenges and
opportunities of my new role excites me immensely.”
Futurebank has enjoyed phenomenal growth under the very able
leadership of Dr. Seif, my predecessor, and I hope to
continue in his footsteps by continuing to provide a
personalized form of banking to our core-base of clients, I
hope to strengthen Futurebank’s already stalwart presence
within the Bahraini banking and finance industry,” he added.
Futurebank which has had a steady growth, reporting a net
profit of BD 5.17 million for the first half-year of 2010
and a profit of BD 2.53 million for the quarter ended 30
June 2010, hopes to attain new standards of growth under the
able guidance of its new CEO, Mr. Souri.
Welcoming Mr. Souri on board Dr. Hamid Borhani, Chairman,
Futurebank said,” I am very pleased to welcome my good
friend and longtime colleague, Mr. Souri, on board and wish
him monumental success in this latest venture. Although Dr.
Seif will be dearly missed in his post, he will continue to
service Futurebank as a Board member for the upcoming years.
Having recruited the right man for the top job, I am
confident that Mr. Souri’s multi-GCC experience makes him
the right person to take Futurebank into the new future.
