Attending CWRU in 1986 at the height of the Iran-Iraq war and returning to a devastated country in 2003, Shwan Ibrahim Taha has witnessed some of the Middle East’s most profound changes.  A biomedical engineering graduate, Mr. Taha nevertheless charted an impressive 20 year career in Middle East banking and finance.  He is the Chairman and Owner of  Rabee Securities, Iraq’s premier financial institution.  With offices in Baghdad, Erbil, Sulaymaniyah, and Istanbul, Mr. Taha brings a unique perspective to the rapid changes which have shaken this important part of the world.
