CEO in Beirut, Lebanon
CEO in Beirut, Lebanon
Marwan Kheireddine is the CEO of AM Bank, and an avid enthusiast of contemporary art. In his role as CEO, and in his passion for the art scene in the Middle East, he is able to build a life that he enjoys and that also helps other people meet their financial goals. He has been involved with the bank in some capacity since 1992. In the past, Kheireddine served as the Minister of State in Lebanon's government. He left that position in 1992, after holding the post for three years.
His work as Minister of State helped set Marwan Kheireddine up for a high degree of success, as he held membership in more than 20 different committees. One of his main areas of focus was on economic growth, where he worked to help empower people in the private sector. With a background in banking, he was better positioned to encourage banks to make investments in areas such as technology. Those kinds of investments helped the banks, the companies, and the country as a whole.
Marwan Kheireddine has also been on the board of stock exchange in Beirut, and has worked on other financial advisory boards in the Middle East, as well. He has an MBA from Columbia Business School, as well as an undergraduate degree in economics and business administration. Not only is Kheireddine an expert in finance, but he is also an entrepreneur. His work in that area is mostly dedicated to companies in the financial sector, but he has also encouraged other types of stores and ventures.
In the Middle East, Marwan Kheireddine is a well-known name and a respected member of the financial and banking communities. That, along with his passion for art and artists in the area, helps him work with others who want to advance their own plans and goals, as well. Specifically, he is interested in Lebanese art and how it has often been undervalued by collectors who don't see the significance of what it has to offer to the world. By drawing attention to that, Kheireddine hopes to showcase the true value.
There are two different ways to look at the investments that Kheireddine makes in the art world. One of those is through the lens of investments that gain value in the marketplace. The other is through the investment he makes in artists and art pieces in which he finds personal value or fulfillment. Much like investments in the banking and financial sectors, there are both logical and emotional considerations. By weighing both, he can help artists and entrepreneurs move forward in their lives.
