The Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation (Apicorp) on Monday announced the appointment of Khalid bin Ali Al Ruwaigh as its new CEO, taking over from Dr Ahmed Ali Attiga who led the multilateral financial institution over the past five years.

“We are cognizant of the importance, complexity and responsibilities of our developmental mandate, and we will continue to adapt to reflect the changing world around us,” he said.

As a company with a unique mandate which sits at the nexus of the energy and financial worlds, the opportunities for growth are truly vast. I look forward to working with our capable management team, our board, and our shareholders to connect industry stakeholders, develop innovative solutions, and support projects which have a positive, tangible, and lasting impact on the lives of people in our part of the world,” Al Ruwaigh said.
