HSBC Qatar appointed Laura Dunn as chief operating officer, the first woman to be appointed in this role in the bank in the country.
“I am very pleased with Laura’s appointment as the chief operating officer in Qatar. Laura has extensive experience in banking and finance, especially in banking operations and will add tremendous value to the senior leadership of the bank,” said Abdul Hakeem Mostafawi, CEO of HSBC in Qatar.
