Head of Retail Banking Operations, Wealth Management & Deputy CIO UAE
My original career path looked very different. I was a pharmacist, encouraged to get into healthcare by my father. But the draw towards business studies was too strong, so after gaining my masters degree in International Business at Wollong University I took my first role in a local bank, where I quickly moved through the ranks to become a Relationship Manager.
