Abdessamad ZAHIM, MBA


En résumé

I completed my M.B.A in Finance & Strategy. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management as well as over 8 years of Project management and financial services experience. During my two-year M.B.A program, I had the opportunity to work with different mentalities and backgrounds since 70% of all assignments were performed within groups. Group projects can be challenging and rewarding, but above all, they have taught me how to be a team player especially in difficult times and deadline-driven situations.

Starting October 2005, I joined State Street Bank & Trust in Boston / Ma (USA); first as a Financial Consultant and then promoted to the position of Financial Analyst within the Wealth Management Department. I was also part of the Due diligence team that supervised the merger of State Street bank and Investors Bank and Trust cash and transfers processes. My added value was quickly seen by all Managers and VP’s.

I am now intervening in several Financial Management & Planning, Banking, Organization and Strategy missions (inside Morocco and abroad).
