“I have a track record of creating such strategies and deploying technology roadmaps that deliver exceptional products and services that enable more efficient organizational operations and boost business growth in both existing and new markets, positioning enterprises as game changers in their market.

In my previous role as Senior Executive Vice President of Mashreq Bank, Group Head of Technology, Transformation, and Information, I lead a team of 700 (local and international) employees to work strategically and deliver future-proof technology solutions (Super App, Wealth Management, Open Banking Architecture, Platform Banking, Cloud Migration, AI and Data-driven operation, Intelligence Cybersecurity, Digital Optimization) for Mashreq Bank.

My past experiences at Mashreq, Mckinsey, Alibaba, Google, Asus, Intel, ICONIQ Motors working in a variety of roles (CIO/CTO, CEO, Board Member, Director of Product) in different countries (UAE, US, China, Singapore, Taiwan) have taught me how to adapt to different company cultures and collaborate with all types of people. It’s shown me the value of diverse perspectives and collective efforts, which enable us to achieve something greater.

I have a passion for balancing top-down business strategies and bottom-up engineering innovation. I lead with strategic thinking, transparency, agility, and a strong work ethic to inspire and empower all of my teams. Together we amplify our creativity, develop cutting-edge solutions, meet business needs, and respond with emerging technology when faced with challenges, like the COVID-19 pandemic.
