After 23 years at Bank of America, Talal Ghandour joins Metito as Chief Investment Officer and Managing Director. Talal will form part of the senior management team and be primarily responsible for the companies’ global strategic growth initiatives.

Talal was one of Bank of America Corporation’s longest-serving senior executives in the Middle East, and until recently led the bank’s equities unit in the Middle East and North Africa, where he helped build one of the biggest regional franchises. “I felt this was the right time to join our family business especially given the companies’ exciting growth prospects, and I’m extremely excited to be part of Metito management team and look forward to continuing to pursue Metito’s long-term growth plans,” commented Talal Ghandour.

Metito has been growing steadily under the leadership of Talal’s father, Mutaz Ghandour, Metito’s Chairman & CEO, to now being a leading global provider of intelligent water and alternative energy management solutions.
