I have spent over two decades in financial services industry, majority of which were spent at Citibank NA in Credit, Coverage and Leadership functions. In my last assignment at Citi, I was Corporate and Investment Banking Head for Abu Dhabi and Levant region, having held similar positions for Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and prior to that for Dubai, where I led origination and execution of financing transactions for large corporates, FIs and Sovereigns across Syndicated Loans, Debt Capital Markets, Export Credit Agency backed financing and cash flow backed financing.
