SABB’s new Western Province Management building has been officially opened at an inauguration ceremony in Jeddah, hosted by SABB Chairman, Sheikh Khaled Suliman Olayan, and attended by several members of the board, distinguished guests and senior management.
Sheikh Khaled Suliman Olayan commented on the progress witnessed in the Western Region thanks to the efforts of HRH Prince Khalid Al Faisal, Governor of Makkah Al Mukaramah Region, and HRH Prince Mishaal Bin Majed Bin Abdulaziz, Governor of Jeddah, under the directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and HRH the Crown Prince and HRH the Second Deputy Premier. He further commented that the move to the new building demonstrated the Bank’s confidence in the continuing expansion of its business.
“2009 was a challenging year for the financial services industry. However, SABB is strongly positioned to take advantage of opportunities which the expanding Saudi economy will enjoy in 2010” Sheikh Khaled said.
“Indeed, year on year, our business improved in 2009, with operating income increasing encouragingly over the previous year".
“I am confident that our actions last year will be reflected in the continuing development of our business in 2010, whilst maintaining our prudent approach to conducting our business and enhancing the delivery of our services to our valued customers.”
