Hangari succeeds Sobhi Tabbara, who has decided to pursue opportunities outside HSBC, in this MENA leadership role.
Tabbara led HSBC global private banking in MENA since 2012, driving the expansion of its UHNW coverage in markets such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain. Hangari and Tabbara will serve as co-heads until January 2024 to ease the transition.
Hangari joins from Credit Suisse where he spent 20 years, most recently as CEO of the arm in Qatar and CEO of Aventicum Capital Management. He will play a significant role in continuing HSBC Global Private Banking’s success across all countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
