Temporary CEO appointment made after incumbent’s resignation.

Abdul Omar Al-Ojaili has been appointed acting CEO of Oman’s Bank Dhofar. He replaces Anthony Mahoney, who has resigned for personal reasons, effective from September 26.

Al-Ojaili has been at the bank since 1990 and has held various roles in the corporate banking, internal audit, retail banking and support services segments. His last role was general manager of corporate services.

Bank Dhofar announced in July that it had approached smaller rival Bank Sohar with a view to carrying out a merger. The new entity would be the country’s second-largest bank, with total assets of OMR4.1bn (US$10.6bn).
