Mubasher: Al Baraka Banking Group, dually-listed on Bahrain Bourse and Nasdaq Dubai, announced the appointment of Abdullah Saleh Kamel as the board's new chairman.

Commenting on the appointment, the President and Chief Executive of Al Baraka Banking Group, Adnan Ahmed Yousif, said: "This acceptance [for assuming the Chairmanship] provides a sure guarantee that the Group will continue with the same approach its late Founder chose for it."
