DUBAI, Aug 19 (Reuters) - National Bank of Kuwait, the Gulf Arab state’s largest commercial lender, appointed Nasser Abdullah al-Sayer as its new chairman, the bank said on Tuesday.
Sayer previously served as deputy chairman of the bank’s board of directors.
He succeeds Mohammed Abdulrahman al-Bahar, who died earlier this month. Ghassan Ahmed al-Khaled will now become deputy chairman, the bank said. (Reporting by Azza Al Arabi; Editing by Andrew Torchia)
