Some people celebrate milestones with cake. In Pedram’s case, he decided to celebrate his tenth year of working on Bay Street by taking a sabbatical to give back to the global community in a meaningful way through the Uniterra Program. His skills in finance and consulting were matched to a need in Malawi. During 2018, he will be serving as a financial literacy and digital banking advisor with FINCA Impact Finance, a global microfinance leader. Working with FINCA Malawi’s leadership team, Pedram’s mandate is to improve the organization’s capabilities in providing much needed financial literacy programs to its 60,000 customers and implementing digital banking solutions. On weekends, you’ll catch Pedram getting chased by elephants whilst on safari, or scuba diving in beautiful Lake Malawi.
