Sultan Choudhury, Chief Executive, Al Rayan Bank, receives OBE from HRH Prince William
Last summer we announced that Al Rayan Bank Chief Executive Officer, Sultan Choudhury, had been awarded Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in recognition of his services to Islamic finance. In November he attended a special investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace where he received his OBE from His Royal Highness, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.
Mr Choudhury said he felt privileged to be awarded the OBE and dedicated the honour to his family and colleagues for their support over the years in helping to make Al Rayan Bank the huge success it is today.
“It was a great privilege for me to receive this honour from HRH Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace in front of my family,” he said.
“I must pay tribute to them for the help and support they have given me since the bank was founded. It is also important to highlight the efforts and commitment of my Al Rayan Bank colleagues, past and present, and their invaluable contributions which have been instrumental in the success of Islamic banking in the UK.”
