Waseem is the lead accountant for Airblox.
Waseem has over 15 years of experience in accounting, finance and controlling. He has a very diverse background having worked in the middle east for much of his career before entering the world of aviation.
The world is a small place, and the aviation and logistics industry seems even smaller to me. My journey in accounting started with small organizations getting exposed to a few vendors of a business to large organizations with even more vendors. I was fortunate enough to get an opportunity for an airline where I was controlling and managing the weight allocations of inbound and outbound flights for an air carrier. I realized that with the trend of globalization and commerce, a snowball was being created and the best way to tackle it is with technology for us accountants and for the industry as a whole.
The Airblox opportunity presented itself when I was working at O’Hare and as mentioned earlier, this small world even got smaller, and the problem of space and weight grew more than where I had left it. More than a change, I wanted a challenge and the timing was perfect, a great change within logistics and aviation.
I manage all things accounting but being part of the technology that manages our fintech platform and working in a growing team with cutting edge technologies, that’s what makes my job fun! I have two amazing daughters where my wife and I enjoy traveling and exploring world cuisines.
