The upsurge of Lebanese banker and thought leader Marwan Kheireddine

Lebanese banker and thought leader Marwan Kheireddine has seen it all. He is the current president of the Institute of International Finance. He also served as a minister in Lebanon’s interim government and was formerly deputy general manager of Crédit Libanais Bank.

Kheireddine has lived through some of the most daunting periods in recent history for Lebanon: civil war, Israeli invasion and occupation (1978-2000), Syrian work (1976-2005), and the long conflict between Hezbollah and Israel that began in 2000. Through these turbulent times, he has been an active participant, serving as Lebanon’s minister of state – a position he held from 1998 to 2000 – in deposed premier Rafiq Al-Hariri’s government. He was also deputy general manager at Crédit Libanais Bank S.A.L. and a member of the boards of many companies.

Kheireddine is one of the most dynamic financial people in Lebanese history. A tall, cheerful man with a ready laugh and a quick wit, he possesses many talents and skills. He is fluent in Arabic, English, French and basic Hebrew; he reads Italian and Spanish; speaks Danish; has mastered the basics of Mandarin Chinese; and knows a little about Italian art history.

Despite his busy schedule, Kheireddine is an avid student of history and politics. He is always on the lookout for news and current events. His circle of friends includes not only leading figures in Lebanon’s political and financial sectors
