Dear LIFE members and friends,

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Nadine Massoud - Bernheim as CEO of LIFE, effective September 1st, 2017.
Nadine brings a wealth of experience to our organisation acquired through a career spanning 31 years of Finance, Entrepreneurship and Leadership. Nadine was most recently acting as Executive Coach at The Preston Associates in London, where she helped her clients navigate the challenges and opportunities of changing environments and achieve their full potential.  
Nadine had previously served as a Managing Director at Merrill Lynch where she was responsible for the Bank’s Structured Credit and Solutions business with French institutions and later ran the team responsible for the bank’s relationships with Sovereign Wealth Funds in EMEA. In 2010, she founded ESMOD Istanbul, a global French Fashion school franchise which she later sold part of to Vakko Holdings, a major Turkish conglomerate.
Nadine holds a Masters of Economics from Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne and a Post-graduate certificate in Executive Coaching. 

Nadine’s mission will revolve around i) expanding further the value proposition for LIFE’s members; ii) helping the executive team achieve its full organisational potential to better serve our community's objectives; and iii) enhance our fundraising and sustainability efforts in order to help even more students and ensure a sustainable future for LIFE.
 
Please join me in welcoming Nadine to the LIFE family and in thanking Wahid Chammas, Mouhammed Choukeir and Spiro Youakim, as well as the executive team, who have worked hard to smoothly run the organisation during the transition.
 
Best regards,

Marc Malek
