Prior to his current role, Mr. Bouland was the Chief Economist at Samba Financial Group in Riyadh for almost nine years. There he published regularly on issues related to the Saudi Arabian and global economies and the world oil market. Before joining Samba, Mr. Bourland spent an 18-year career as diplomat, economist, and manager with the U.S. Department of State.
