A global thought leader, disruptor and innovator with an entrepreneurial flair. As an international development banker I have conceptualized and developed new institutions and business models in challenging environments. My core competencies include New Ventures, MSME Banking, Project Finance, Team Building, Strategy Formulation, Digital Transformation, Change Management, Business Development and Good Governance. I am a strategic thinker with strong ethical standards and focus on results. With exceptional business acumen and broad experience on a global stage I have served on the boards of several international companies and provided strategic advice to senior management and business owners. With an MBA in Finance from the Asian Institute of Management in Manila, an MS in Metallurgical Engineering from Moscow Institute of Steel & Alloys, a certification on “Strategy in the Age of Digital Disruption” from INSEAD, and over 35 years of international experience in development banking and finance, I have developed a network of diverse professionals in every corner of the globe whom I leverage to ensure that the UN Sustainable Development Goals are at the center of all business decisions.
