Kane has covered the Middle East’s business scene since 2006.
Business news platform Arabian Gulf Business Insight (AGBI) has announced it has appointed Frank Kane as Editor-at-Large.
Since relocating to the Middle East in 2006, Kane has worked for The National and Arab News and has covered all aspects of the region’s business and financial scene, with a particular emphasis on the profound economic changes underway in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In a career spanning 30 years, Kane has also worked as a business journalist and editor for some of the world’s most prestigious titles, including the Financial Times, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, and The Observer. Under his wide-ranging brief at AGBI, Kane will leverage his extensive experience to report on and analyze the region’s key business trends and stories.
“I’m pleased to be joining such a talented team of journalists, and looking forward to injecting some serious insight into regional business coverage,” Kane said of his new role.
The latest appointment follows the recent announcement that James Drummond, a seasoned financial journalist and experienced regional markets analyst, will steer the development of the digital resource as Editor-in-Chief.
“We are delighted to welcome Frank to the team,” said Drummond. “He is one of the most respected and high-profile journalists in the Middle East, and his deep knowledge, insights, and understanding of the region will be invaluable to our platform and ever-growing readership base around the world.”

Since its launch, AGBI is attracting in excess of 100,000 website visitors each month, with inbound traffic from across the MENA region.
