Jorim Schraven (Director Strategy)
I joined FMO in 2008 and have seen many different departments within the organisation. I started on FMO’s business side as Investment Officer and became Manager of the Financial Institutions Africa department in 2009. This department is responsible for financing the Financial Sector in Africa as well as for providing Capacity Development assistance. Later on, I took on the role as Manager of the Credit Department and Chairman of the Investment Committee to assess FMO’s investments and to decide whether or not these investments would fit FMO’s mission and goals.

When I made a decision to move to FMO, I hoped that my studies at the Poznan University of Economics and Business (Poland), would compensate my lack of experience in a banking sector. Getting this job felt a bit like closing the circle. More
