Tawuniya appoints Rania Al Turki as COO

With this step, which is one of the first in the Saudi insurance sector, Rania Al-Turki becomes the first Saudi woman to take a leadership position since Tawuniya's establishment


In line of its strategy to enable high Saudi calibers, the Company for Cooperative Insurance, Tawuniya, appointed Rania Sami Al-Turki as Chief Operating Officer (COO). With this step, which is one of the first in the Saudi insurance sector, Rania Al-Turki becomes the first Saudi woman to take a leadership position since Tawuniya’s establishment.

On this occasion, Tawuniya’s CEO Abdul Aziz Al Boug expressed his happiness in the appointment of Rania in this leading role due to her long experience which extends to more than 15 years, as well as her extensive list of academic qualifications. She holds a Master’s degree with honors in Computer Science from George Washington University, a Ph.D. candidate in Information Technology at George Mason University, and a BA in Computer Science from Indiana State University.

Al Boug Noted, “Tawuniya’s strategy focused a lot of its attention to employees, both males and females, as they are the company’s human capital. In line with its strategy, Tawuniya launched several initiatives to improve the work environment and qualify its employees through advanced training programs. This is in parallel to Tawuniya’s initiatives that raised the Saudization rates to more than 82%.

Al Boug affirmed his optimism towards the success of this step, and that it will be an encouragement to other Saudi females to develop their skills and rise to more leadership career paths in all sectors. Which also follows Saudi Arabia’s efforts in enabling and empowering Saudi women, and supporting their full participation in the labor market.

Prior to joining Tawuniya, Rania held the position of Chief Human Capital Officer and Head of Transformation in one of the most important publicly listed Saudi commercial groups and held the position of Senior Vice President of Human Resources Partnership at a leading Saudi bank.
