Amana Capital, a Dubai-headquartered retail brokerage firm, has promoted Charbel Saleh, its Customer Service Manager, to the position of the Head of Operations. Saleh announced his promotion on Wednesday on LinkedIn.

The executive, who boasts over a decade of experience in the financial industry, joined Amana Capital in February 2015 as a Customer Support and Operation Associate. He started working for the retail broker after spending over a year in Lebanon at the rival brokerage FXCM in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) office.

Before FXCM, Saleh served as an intern at two firms, first at Asmida Group in 2011 and later at a credit automation and risk solutions software company, Bluering, in 2013.

Reshuffles and Departures

Saleh’s appointment follows other recent promotions and the executive reshuffles that Amana Capital has made this year. In May, the retail broker appointed Mahmoud Elbakatoushy as the Vice President and promoted Amr Masry to the position of Sales Director. The firm also promoted Fayez Alkhouli to the position of the Vice President of Sales in the same month.

Still in May, Amana Capital expanded its leadership team by appointing Matt Carstens as its new Director of Product Experience and Justin Biebel as the Director of Product Implementation. A month earlier, the broker chose Joy Dabeet as its new Chief Marketing Officer and hired Mani Sahota as its new Chief Information Officer in March to grow its digital presence.

Apart from promotions and executive role reshuffles, a number of executives have departed from Amana Capital in the past few months. In September, Karim Malas left his role as the Director of Operations at the brokerage to join Credit Financier Invest as the Global Head of Operations. Malas left Amana Capital after almost nine years of working at the broker.

At the beginning of the year, Ahmad Khatib, the former CEO of Amana, and Ziad Melhem, the broker’s ex-Chief Business Development Officer, launched Mafhoom Technologies, a financial empowerment application.
