Mezzan Holding has a new group chief financial officer

Kuwait-based food and beverage company Mezzan Holding has named Fares Hammami as new group chief financial officer.

Hammami served as the investment banking director at NBK Capital, the investment banking arm of National Bank of Kuwait, for the past decade.

"Although Fares is a new member to the management team, he is no stranger to Mezzan Holding," Mezzan Holding CEO Garry Walsh said. "We've been working closely with Fares over the last five years in his capacity as a director of investment banking at NBK Capital, where he served as our adviser on several landmark transactions for Mezzan, including our acquisition of UAE-based Unitra Mets Group in 2014 and our company's IPO in June 2015."

Hammami has spent more than 10 years in the fields of investment banking, mergers, acquisitions and capital markets. He was a former board member of the CFA Institute's Kuwait chapter and is a Chartered Financial Analyst.

"Mezzan Holding is a company that I have both served and admired for several years, and I am excited to join the company as Group CFO to help lead its next phase of growth and value creation both locally and regionally," Hammami said. "I look forward to working with my former clients as part of their leadership team."

Hammami will replace Stephen Carty, who is going back to the United States to be closer to his family.
