Another first to go down in the books: Madhawi A. AlOmran, a Saudi woman, has become the first to occupy the position of Assistant Deputy Minister at the Ministry of Investment in Saudi Arabia. This is not AlOmran’s first rodeo as her 13 years of experience speak for themselves. She has been working in multiple high-level positions in both the private and public sectors. She has achieved so many career milestones in various finance sectors including macroeconomic, fiscal policy development, banking, financial services, and investment. Her academic background includes a B.S and M.A degres in Economics from King Saud University, in addition to gaining multiple certifications and courses in her field. After that she has worked at multiple positions including the esteemed National Commercial Bank for four years, and after that Princess Norah Bint Abdul Rahman University for five years.
After nine years in the private sector, she moved on to the public sector where she got her first position in the Ministry of Finance in 2016 as part of the department that was establishing the macro fiscal policy unit at that time. Throughout her time at the Ministry of Finance, AlOmran occupied different positions until she has successfully reached the role of General Manager of Macroeconomic Analysis in the ministry. During her time at that role, the Saudi economic genius gained her experience in external and international economic sectors with economic modeling and evaluating economic and fiscal policies being put into practice.
After AlOmran’s couple of years at the Ministry of Finance, she joined the Ministry of Investment as the General Manager of Economic Analysis and Advisory. She spent one year in that position, until she made history by becoming the first woman to be selected as Assistant Deputy Minister of Economic Affairs and Investment Studies. Al Omran is just one of many Saudi women excelling and shining in their careers. From finance to fashion, several names are coming up every single day to portray accomplishments and career milestones that count as first of many.
