Mr. Hassan added: “NBAD is an exciting and challenging place to work. The opportunities for bright, intelligent individuals, who work hard and are committed, are huge as the Bank is growing in many different areas.”

This Bank continues to contribute to the progress of the UAE, especially by financing enormous projects in different economic sectors,” Mr. Hassan said.
