Mouhcine ZEKKRI

Managing Director

Mouhcine is a SWIFT expert specialized in systems integration. After obtaining his Masters degree in Computer Sciences from Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, he spends more than 10 years within SWIFT where he holds several positions ranging from software engineering to consultancy (both technical and integration) as well as country management for several countries throughout Africa and the Middle East. 

Over the course of his career within SWIFT, Mouhcine delivered strategic and critical projects at numerous financial institutions (commercial as well as central banks) in Africa, the Middle East and Europe. A large portion of these projects consisted in automating the banks' processing chains in order to increase their operational efficiency and bring to the minimum the risks linked to non-STP processes (human errors, fraud attempts, etc.).

To answer the need of the African banking communities for specialized straight-through-processing (STP), integration and SWIFT related assistance, Mouhcine decided to found FINLENCE Consulting.
