Expressing his opinion on the unique milestone, His Excellency Abdul-Aziz Abdulla Al Ghurair, Chairman of Oman Insurance Company now referred to as “Sukoon”, said “With a vision to develop local expertise and a solution to protect people, my father Abdullah Al Ghurair launched Oman Insurance in 1975, almost half a century ago. A lot has been achieved and much impressive progress has been made in all these years to prepare ourselves for the future of insurance. Today, the company is amongst the best, strongest and most customer-centric insurers in the region. It is the right time for us to reflect these changes and our values in a new brand.”
