Walid Hassouna, CEO of the EFG Hermes' Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFI) platform, has left his role to become the CEO of EFG Hermes' consumer finance arm valU.

"The decision to appoint Hassouna as CEO of valU follows the remarkable success the brand has achieved in a short span of 5 years, becoming one of the fastest growing BNPL [buy-now, pay-later] players in MENA [the Middle East and North Africa]," a press release by EFG Hermes read.
