Mr. Ahmad Aweidah has been the Chief Executive Officer of the Palestine Exchange since June 2008. His strategic vision is to put the PEX on the world's investment map through conducting regional and international road shows to promote investment in Palestine in general and in the Palestinian companies listed on PEX in specific by marketing the success stories of these companies. The PEX promotional road shows target investment funds interested in emerging markets, as well as Palestinian diaspora communities to encourage them to invest in their homeland. He plays a leading role in positioning the PEX as one of the pioneer institutions in the development of an independent national economy.
Aweidah has more than 16 years experience in banking and telecommunications in Europe and the Middle East. He holds a Master’s Degree in Economics from The University of St. Andrews, Scotland UK. He is also a fellow of the Aspen Institute Global Leadership Initiative.
