Government-backed nationalization efforts and consolidation of Gulf Cooperation Council banks through mergers and acquisition, the requirements that banks place on their leadership and senior staff are more demanding than ever before. A senior leader in the banking sector must be able to take on these changes and build a team capable of weathering challenges which could range from the intricacies of a merger to the impact of global events.
