AICDP and our Partners Cedar Rose are delighted to announce the formation of the AICDP group covering the geographic area of The Middle East and Africa. Over the coming weeks, we will be working together to engage with International Credit and Risk Operations (I.C.R.O’s) and new and existing Corporate Members to build up the nucleus of the new group which will be based on the template that emerged with the successful launch of our Ireland Group. Our collective intent will be to have an official launch of the new group in Dubai in the autumn of this year.

Bill Dunlop said, “AICDP are extremely excited about this highly significant initiative and the part it plays in the continuing journey of growth and influence of our Association. Embarking upon this leg with partners of quality and reputation such as Cedar Rose, whom we have known and respected for many years will, in my view guarantee its’ success.”

Antoun Massaad, CEO of Cedar Rose said, “We are delighted to partner with AICDP in forming the East and Africa-focused branch of this prestigious organisation. The training, education and peer networking opportunities offered by AICDP will be welcomed within the region and will be of great benefit to International Credit Professionals and Credit Directors in our part of the world.”
