Home > News > Black History Month : Nike Kazzim

Name: Nike Kazzim

Role: Regional HR Business Partner, COO, Operations, Technology & Innovation


I’ve been working in Human Resources for 10 years and have spent my entire HR career in Financial Services. I really love how dynamic the industry is and the opportunities it creates for advancement.

I joined Standard Charted Bank in January and prior to this, I worked for Barclays in both in London and most recently New York which was an incredible experience on both a personal and professional level. For the most part, I’ve worked as a HR Business Partner supporting Operations, Technology and Innovation client groups and I’ve worked on some interesting projects and initiatives along the way.

Greatest challenges:

“I strongly believe that life’s challenges are a necessary part of character-building process, but it takes more to overcome some than others. “

Key Achievements:


Best advice you would give to someone: Learn to be your biggest cheerleader


Hopes for the future: It’s both encouraging and inspiring to see how well black men and women are excelling in the workplace despite the challenges we all face. Overtime, my hope is that the workplace glass ceiling won’t be so impenetrable for us.
