Get to know May, new CHRO at axefinance
Having spent her youth in the United States, Tunisia, and Egypt, studied in the United Kingdom, launched her professional career in Libya and held several regional positions, May has had the chance to build an international experience and has consequently developed and instinctively cultivated a cross-cultural background. She obtained several degrees from various institutions, including a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the American University in Cairo, a master’s degree in HR Management and Organizational Analysis from King’s College in London, and an Executive MBA from the Mediterranean School of Business, an AMBA London accredited business school in Tunis.
Passionate about human resources, her career track encompasses over 18 years of experience covering several countries across the MENA region in various HR functions, change management, strategy, as well as organizational design and analysis. She led many projects and initiatives including launching HR departments and functions, designing and implementing people strategies, promoting employee engagement and developing corporate culture, in addition to building diverse and dynamic teams to drive organizational change and growth.
“My career has thus far involved building knowledge and expertise in many sectors, including oil & gas, investment banking, and private equity. Now, I tackle a new and exciting journey with axefinance, one of the global leading firms in the LendTech industry. Joining axefinance’s diverse team with its global mindset in 2022 certainly felt like the natural choice.
I look forward to contributing to axefinance’s growth and prosperity supporting its vision and strategic direction. At axefinance, just as we strive to create an excellent customer experience for our clients, we are also committed to ensure a great employee experience and journey for our employees. Our HR mission is to create a positive work environment, a strong corporate culture, and ensuring our employees are engaged, happy and constantly developing.
