Dear Members,

The year 2019 is a special year for CFA Emirates as we ran our first open elections to vote for the Society’s Board of Directors. I want to thank all CFA Emirates members that participated and voted in this election. We had 257 members vote. I also want to thank the existing Board members that brought us to this stage, and the Nomination Committee members who ensured we run a fair and transparent elections.

It is with great pleasure that we today announce the newly elected CFA Emirates Board of Directors:

Richard Lee, CFA as President

Romain Rousseau, CFA as Board member

Binod Shankar, CFA as Board member

Mohamed Alhameli, CFA as Board member

Viktorija Aksionova, CFA as Board member

Soha Ragab, CFA as Board member

Yasir Syed, CFA as Board member

Manish Agarwal, CFA as Board member

Tarun Khandelwal, CFA as Board member

The new Board will start its term on July 1st 2019, and run for two years until June 30th 2021.

Our Society has continued to grow in members and in value creation for its members since its inception. I have no doubt that the new Board will continue this growth. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the new Board members and wish them the best of luck in their coming Term.

Thank you,

Amer Khansaheb

CFA Society Emirates – President
