I am versatile and experienced in banking with excellent academic credentials and I have over 8 years’ experience in numerous industries in successful companies in France, the UK, and others. 

Being committed and passionate about providing leadership of excellence has been reflected in the results achieved and the programs I have implemented in all my capacities to date. This success has been confirmed by targets achieved and surpassed in every company that has employed me. 

I have a lovely family around the world which gives me the chance to visit many different countries and understand their cultures. My interest is in banking as well as management and leadership. I am open-minded and enjoy working with people from different walks of life. As a hard-working, resourceful individual, I excel when negotiating deals, motivating and leading others in a team, and finding creative solutions to strategy related issues. All these give me a tremendous sense of accomplishment and satisfaction in my work.

I am sociable and very open-minded and always looking to upskill myself.

What is your most cherished memory?

My most cherished memory is when I got my first job which was a big challenge to me. I was employed after a long and exhaustive assessment of several candidates. It still makes me feel strong and encouraged when it comes to my mind..

Which country have you always wanted to visit and why?

Dubai is a dream country for me and the reason I would like to visit that lovely country is to see how they managed to grow strong within just a short span of time. I believe they are smart in terms of infrastructure and I love their vision of development.

Mohandas Gandhi also is my role model because through peace and diplomacy, he managed to help India become a better place. I look up to his leadership style.

If you could go on a road trip with anyone in history, who would it be?

Nelson Mandela whom I admire for his leadership style, courage, strength, and dignity he displayed throughout his whole life. He could have given up during the harsh times characterized by racism and hatred but he never did.

From my experiences, I learned that life is a policy of give and take. Being sociable, trustworthy, and fair to people is something I would like to pass on to generations to come.
