Orhan Osmansoy, a veteran investment banker with deep experience at both Morgan Stanley and Whitney Group, will be new CEO and assume his office in September.

Abdullah Al Mazrui, chairman of TNI, said: "Under Dr El Solh's leadership, TNI's total assets grew by 484 per cent and total equity by 587 per cent. Moreover, return on equity last year was a remarkable 51 per cent and profits were up by 721 per cent."

In the last three years, TNI has conducted over Dh6 billion worth of equity offerings, earning it the top spot in IPOs in the UAE. The strong performance during Dr El Solh's tenure is reflected in the substantial surge of the company's share price, up by 713 per cent since April 2002.
