Former NAB boss to head Govt property venture

The National Australia Bank’s executive director Ahmed Fahour is leaving the bank to head up the Federal Government’s moves to shore up the commercial property sector.

* The idiocy of “defamation of religion”

* This time the brownshirts hide behind religion. So far, it’s working well for them.

Treasurer Wayne Swan has appointed Mr Fahour as the interim chief executive of the Australian Business Investment Partnership.

The Government is providing $2 billion to secure commercial property investments in Australia, and wants that money matched by the major banks.

Mr Fahour had led NAB’s Australian operations since 2004, but he moved to a more strategic role in January when a new chief executive came on board.

    Fahour’s family migrated to Australia when he was an infant.[1] He studied at St Joseph’s College in North Fitzroy, and later attended Redden College in Preston (now called Samaritan Catholic College). After high school, he attended Latrobe University in Melbourne from 1984. After a brief spell as a graduate trainee at the ANZ Bank, he went on to complete his Master of Business Administration degree (MBA) at Melbourne Business School in 1993 while working for Boston Consulting Group. He became a director of the group in 1997 and spent a year as Co-Managing Director of its joint-venture investment company, Iformation. While at BCG, he worked closely with many other Australian business people, including Colin Carter, George Pappas, Maurie Koop, and Mark Joiner.
