Omar leaves a long tenure at UAE-based FX and CFDs broker amana, where he rose through the ranks over the course of nearly eleven years. He will remain in Dubai, where he has worked for the last three years.

“Today, my journey ends at Amana. It’s been a golden ride, and I was blessed to be part of it. I want to send my sincere wishes to Muhammad Rasoul, the Founders, and the entire team and wish them the best of luck. A special thanks go to my mentors and friends, Ahmad Khatib and Ziad Melhem, who supported me throughout my journey. I am ready now for the new challenge as the Marketing Director at MultiBank Group and hope we achieve more success and prosperity for the organization,” Omar wrote in a Linkedin profile.

Omar’s main responsibilities will be to help foster and develop MultiBank’s marketing operations. A former marketing manager at different Lebanon-based companies, he will be tasked with steering the broker’s global marketing functions across its different jurisdictions. This includes many responsibilities ranging from the execution of the company’s brand strategy to its product marketing efforts, corporate communications, and digital marketing agenda.

Omar joins MultiBank nearly two months after the broker relocated its headquarters from Hong Kong to Dubai, UAE. The group said it has selected Dubai for its infrastructure, accessibility, and strategic location as a gateway to other markets in the MEA region. The move comes shortly after it has secured two strategic regulatory licenses from the Securities and Commodities Authority of the United Arab Emirates (SCA) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

The addition of these coveted licenses extends the group’s regulatory arsenal to include companies authorised by ASIC in Australia, BaFin in Germany, FMA in Austria, SCA in the United Arab Emirates, MAS in Singapore and CIMA in the Cayman Islands.

Founded in 2005, MultiBank Group has a current paid-up capital of over $322 million and counts an extensive client-base of over 320,000 customers from across 90 countries.
