Dubai-based KBW Investments, the private equity vehicle of HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal and owner of Raimondi Cranes, has appointed Fida Chaaban as chief communications officer.

The group, founded in 2013 by the Saudi prince, has recently been engaged in a spree of acquisitions and strategic partnerships, and Chaaban’s role will be to liaise with both media and investment stakeholders on behalf of the group.

She told The Media Network: “I’m looking forward to my new role with KBW Investments as the group’s chief communications officer. My appointment comes as the group rapidly expands its operations and makes strategic advancements in the MENA region and beyond.”

Chaaban has been a media and communications professional in the Gulf for the best part of the decade, with experience in both the UAE and Lebanon. Prior to the appointment, Chaaban was the founding editor-in-chief of trade magazines Entrepreneur Middle East and Entrepreneur Qatar.

She continued: “KBW’s chairman has a keen interest in startups both in the Middle East and further afield. This new role will allow me to continue to remain closely involved with the entrepreneurial ecosystem, which was a key factor in my decision to join the company.”

In these roles, she communicated on business matters spanning a variety of sectors and disciplines.
