Rana Salatt

“I started my career with Commercial Bank as a Graduate Trainee in Retail Banking, but soon chose to move into the Risk Department as it is a unique part of the business and I was keen to learn new skills. 

“With hard work, I was soon recognised as an excellent achiever and promoted to Risk Credit Administration Assistant. From there, my career progressed. 

“The Bank has always encouraged my appetite to learn and has given me the immense responsibility to head one of its most critical divisions, as Head of Credit Administration. Now working as Senior Assistant General Manager, Head of Risk Control, my career is still evolving and growing.”
