Joseph is a HSBC banker who joined the Group in Canada in 2006. He relocated to the Middle East in 2012 and has held leadership positions with HSBC in the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain – most recently as Head of Wholesale Banking in Bahrain, a role to which he was appointed in 2022.

Stephen Moss, Chief Executive Officer, MENAT, HSBC Group, said, “I look forward to working with and supporting Joseph to deliver the next phase of growth of HSBC Bahrain and to build on its position as an important network market in a region where our ambitious growth agenda is delivering results. Joseph will build on firm foundations laid by Chris Russell, who has delivered exceptional results for clients in Bahrain over the last three years.”

Commenting on his appointment Joseph Ghorayeb said, “It is a privilege to be allowed to serve as CEO of HSBC in Bahrain and to serve our clients in this market.
