Oumy Baby Kane
( Board President )
A native of Senegal (West Africa), having been born and raised in Dakar I speak French, Wolof, Pulaar. After attending Van Vollenhoven high school, I earned a degree in Business and marketing at the Management Institute of Dakar University where I was also a member of the Martial art team. I also hold Federal and States security licenses for Investment Banking in the US. Rooted in my community, I served as mentor and advisor in the Youth Chamber of Commerce Dakar Goree and the Youth Lions Club of Dakar for most part of my youth. A Financial Professional, I am a Merrill Lynch Financial Solutions Advisor today and with more than 20 years’ experience in Finances and Marketing my objectives have always been to help my community and those around me be more successful. After 10 years in Airline industry as a revenue accountant and Operations Manager with Senegal Air and Slok Air International, where I was privileged to oversee 15 countries and coach stations operations, I decided to move to the banking industry to help my community have healthier financial life. My goal as an advisor is to have everybody have access to the financial opportunities I see. Now close to 12 years in the US and 8 years in Portland, I live in the Beaverton area with my spouse, mother and two kids. I try to impact our community we dearly love in supportive ways. I am a dancer and I love cooking, traveling and keeping up with the kids (easier said than done). I also love all things in the film industry and has been a movie fan my entire life.
