As a business leader, Faycal Salek believes we can accomplish more by working together and using our collective intelligence.
Many times throughout his career, Faycal has witnessed firsthand the benefits of this collective intelligence in action and the devastating effects of not tapping into it. This fueled his decision to step up to the plate and help business leaders “hit it out of the park” by harnessing this combined brainpower. Transmitting this philosophy through coaching, Faycal enables business leaders to achieve goals they never thought possible, helping them discover their own diamond in the rough both professionally and personally.
Throughout his career, Faycal has advised business leaders in a variety of sectors—primarily mining, software, and R&D. In addition to having held senior executive positions in listed companies and medium-sized businesses, Faycal has participated in multiple financings and been involved in companies conducting business across the globe. He’s been a board member and president of the audit committee of a listed company and continues to be a member of the audit committee of a professional order.
Faycal’s time spent as CFO for numerous companies has allowed him to master unique skills that come from an operational perspective, giving him valuable insight to advise clients around complex transactions and daily decisions. He has played major roles in recovering businesses going through financial crises, implementing liquidity management policies, and administering due diligence processes.
This diversified experience allows Faycal to quickly identify issues at stake and mobilize and empower leaders to resolve them. Thriving on the challenge of unique business stories and situations, Faycal embraces his TEC Canada Chair role to continue his life-fulfilling endeavour to help others achieve greater things. Members of his CEO group can rely on Faycal to advise them on innovative problem solving and confident decision making.
