Saudi state-run oil giant Aramco earlier this week appointed Huda al-Ghosn as its executive director of employee relations and training, making her the first women to fill this position in the company’s history.

The company said that Ghosn will be responsible for all programs entailing workforce planning, recruiting, training and development as well as retention, services and legal relations coordination of more than 60,000 employees.


Ghosn holds a MBA from the American University of Washington DC and a BA in English from Riyadh’s King Saud University.

Listed by Forbes Arabia as one of the 100 most powerful women in the Arab world, Ghosn joined Aramco in 1981 and has been moving up the ladder since.
