Boubyan Bank - Vice Chairman Resigns To Become Chairman of Warba Bank

Boubyan announced on the KSE today that its Vice Chairman Mr. Jasaar Dakheel AlJasaar had resigned as he had been elected Chairman of Warba Bank.  He submitted his resignation effective 23 February.  However, the Board decided to push the effective date to the coming ordinary general meeting of shareholders. Presumably to avoid having to nominate an interim Vice Chairman and appoint a new board member.  As posted earlier, there is anticipation that NBK will be inserting some of its "people" on the Board given its 40% shareholding.  Nominations for the board opened today (2 March) and extend to 16 March.
