On January 22nd, 2019, at the Automobile Club de France, Qadran’s Founding members gathered around His Excellency Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al Thani on the occasion of a “dinner-debate” co-organized by the Cercle Hébé. Founded in February 2014, Cercle Hébé is a forum aiming to promote youth initiatives.
During this dinner, the role of QNB on the national and international scene was discussed. Christophe Bourland, then General Manager France of QNB and Chairman of Qadran, stressed the evolution of Qatar National Bank, now the leading bank in the Middle East and Africa. This ranking demonstrates the resilience of the Qatari economy.
The meeting, organized by Martin Gunther, co-founder of Cercle Hébé, and Nawel Bellour, led to various exchanges on the promotion of initiatives by the French and Qatari youth.
Around 20 persons attended the event, including business personalities and members of the Cercle Hébé.
