Sheikha Hind named New CEO of Qatar Foundation

In what appears to be a shakeup of senior leadership at Qatar Foundation (QF), Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al-Thani has been named the new chief executive of the organization.

She will serve this role, effective immediately, in addition to her previously held title of vice-chairperson, QF announced this morning in a series of tweets.

Sheikha Hind is the daughter of former Emir Sheikh Hamad and sister of current Emir Sheikh Tamim.

She will run QF with her mother, Chairperson Sheikha Moza bint Nasser.
