SYED KAUSAR KAZMI, Head of Business Development – Europe, Habib Bank AG Zurich, UK, and Director, Habib European Bank, Isle of Man Born in pakistan, in 1953, Syed kazmi’s father was the manager of habib Bank limited, which meant he moved around a lot and spent his schooling years in cantonment public Schools, which, he recalls, “were great disciplinary institutions”. he could not go to the Uk for his planned higher education, which led to a chemical engineering degree. on reflection he says his greatest achievement was starting up and establishing habib european Bank in the isle of man at the age of 28: “not only was i able to get the bank recognition, but i feel proud to have been successful in making a place amongst the manx community, as head of a young muslim family, in the eyes of the manx people, where asians, let alone muslims were few and far between”. the habib story began in karachi, in 1974, at the prestigious 23-storey head office, habib Bank plaza. after two years of training, he joined habib Bank aG Zurich in dubai and then went to oman in 1997. the following year he got his first major break when he was asked to start the nairobi Branch as operations manager which he duly ran for 4 years. Syed kazmi took up his post in isle of man in 1982 at 28 years of age, having never previously been to europe before. he spent over eight years there and, looking back, says this was the biggest challenge of his career given his relatively young age. after being appointed as the executive director of habib european Bank in 1988, he was transferred to london in 1990 to head up its main Branch in moorgate. from 2009 until 2012 mr kazmi was the chief executive officer of the Uk Zone and currently is head of Business development – europe. he continues to be a member of the global management committee of the habib Group of Banks. he credits his father as his biggest inspiration; “despite having suffered from polio at a young age, leaving him with a slight limp, his father was able to reach Senior executive positions through sheer hard work, honesty, determination and vision”. a die-hard liverpool football fan, he rarely misses a good cricket match and enjoys spending time with the family, watching sports and assisting charities. 47
