Yehia El-Husseiny, MBA

For almost 29 years now, I have worked for the Commercial International Bank (CIB) in Egypt. I held senior management positions, including Director and managed various affairs in numerous areas and held an array of responsibilities such as:

  • Managing the Reconciliation and Control Department for more than five years, which included working on the revamp project for replacing the old reconciliation system with the latest scientific international application and providing guidance and support for the project as a project business owner.
  • Managing the Financial Accounting Department for more than eleven years, for the purposes of punctually providing all stakeholders with the requested financial reports and ensuring the reports' accuracy and credibility.

That particular period included a very dramatic transition in the CBE reports, in addition to application of the new CBE regulations, "IFRS". I was responsible for studying new products, and designing the appropriate accounting solution and ensuring that they comply with Egyptian accounting standards, CBE instructions and internal rules.

  • Managing the Expenses and Budget Control Department for almost twelve years, for the purpose of ensuring that business-related expenses are incurred in a manner that appropriately promotes the objectives of the Bank and cost containment. It is also intended to facilitate the Cost Accounting process and the expeditious reimbursement of reasonable and appropriate business expenditure.
