Bankmed is a unique workplace that offers its employees deep technical expertise and a strategic view enabling them to develop at their pace without any artificial boundaries. My journey with this notable financial institution started over nine years ago, whereby I got the chance to witness the Bank’s growth and expansion. My extensive experience in corporate and retail banking coupled with hard work and proven track record of driving substantial commercial growth to improve profitability and exceed financial targets have shaped me into an accomplished, target-oriented and award-winning manager. Today, I am an area manager leading five other branches. Within this framework, I direct day-to-day operations and drive change, implement strategies, procedures and processes in order to deliver continued improvements in service quality.
As a leading financial institution that invests heavily in its staff, Bankmed has offered me the opportunity to hone my skills throughout every step of developing my career path. Hereby, I obtained the TalentPrint certificate from PwC –a two-year program targeting strategic planning and leadership with a focus on the drive to change– and Train the Trainer certificate –Art Development, Dubai. As an inspiring leader and part-time instructor (Finance, Banking Operations and CFA) at American University of Beirut, I am skilled at coaching and motivating teams to achieve goals and acknowledge outstanding performance.
Last but not least, Bankmed is characterized by its unique culture that bursts with compassionate, ambitious, and welcoming individuals. This makes me feel proud to be part of a big professional and first-class financial institution.
