SVP, Head of Strategy & Business Development, US Bank
Chady AlAhmar has a clear perspective about what’s important in life. “Family, friends, colleagues – nurturing and cherishing
personal relationships is very important to me, as I know it is to our clients.” As the Head of Strategy and Business Development, Chady applies his international perspective and experience with domestic financial services companies to design and execute business strategies for U.S. Bank Wealth Management. Prior to joining U.S. Bank in 2010, he held strategy, finance and management consulting positions with F1 Strategy, GMAC and ACG in New York, and ran his own management consulting firm for several years.
The strong team environment and a focus on clients are some of the attributes that attracted Chady to U.S. Bank. Chady embraces the idea of working with purpose every day. “I live to build and generate added value. I perceive success as making things happen for my team, for our organization and for our clients. If they are successful, I’ll be successful.”
