Bahrain’s Gulf International Bank (GIB) has opened its 33,316m2 operations centre in Saudi Arabia’s Al Khobar, which was inaugurated by the governor of the KSA’s Eastern Province HRH Prince Saud bin Nayef Al Saud.
The building is spread over five ergonomically designed floors and supported by a smart technology environment.
Currently, there are more than 500 people employed at the centre - with more than 90% of employees being Saudis - with provision for development and expansion.
The operations centre marks a milestone in the GIB’s expansion strategy and follows the successful conversion of the bank’s existing Saudi branches into a fully-fledged local bank in 2019.
The opening ceremony was attended by the governor of the Central Bank of Bahrain, HE Rasheed Al Maraj; the governor of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency, HE Dr Ahmed bin Abdulkarim Alkholifey, as well as other government officials and leaders.
