Mr. Nechemia the Chairman of the Board of Director of the EurOrient Financial Group, considered the founding father of private-sector development banking, says “the EurOrient Financial Group is changing Page 1 of 3 from a relatively straightforward project financier institution into a full-fledged private sector global development bank responding to a wide range of development needs. As the needs of the developing countries continue to implement economic reforms; as their needs for infrastructure, human resources, and new technology grow; as investments in environmental protection become more pressing; and as socioeconomic concerns like poverty, education, health and population, water supply and sanitation, and urban development and housing become more urgent, the EurOrient faces increasing demands on its assistance and services. In response, the need for continued support for the EurOrient and for the understanding of the EurOrient Financial Group has led to greater demands from various quarters and interest groups for more information about the EurOrient and for greater transparency and accountability with regard to its activities.” Mr. Mustard was hired to foster feedback and enhance public access to policies, programs and services. He is also responsible for building and maintaining communication partnerships to help meet the diverse information needs of citizens and to achieve the EurOrient Financial Group’s global communications objectives. Says Mr. Nechemia, “Mr. Mustard possesses unique combination of skill sets in both marketing and communications arena and natural instinct to the issues that will help drive our communications messages to our many constituencies throughout the world.” Despite the financial crisis and the global economic deterioration,” says Mr. Nechemia “we are celebrating the 4th year of non-interrupted growth and we are cautiously scaling up our operation for the benefit of developing nations seeking sustainable economic development and poverty reduction and to boost EurOrient's institutional capacity.” Mr. Nechemia added, “EurOrient’s sustainable growth is accredited to the successful business model pursued by the institution and the strong economic ties into Asia, Mr. Mustards extraordinary media skills and marketing savvy will contribute greatly to our image and the enhancement of our brand to the myriad stakeholders and constituencies, both internal and external.” About EurOrient EurOrient Financial Group is a private sector global development finance institution accredited by United Nations General Assembly on Financing for Development.
