History of EXIM Bank
Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Ltd. (EXIM Bank) was established in 1999 under the leadership of Late Mr Shahjahan Kabir, Founder Chairman who had been cherishing a dream of floating a commercial bank which would contribute to the socio-economic development of our country by facilitating industrialization, woman empowerment, foreign trade, infrastructural development, income generation for the marginal, and above all job creation. He had a long experience as a good banker. A group of highly qualified and successful entrepreneurs joined hands with the founder chairman to materialize his dream. Indeed, all of them had already established themselves in their respective businesses as the most successful business personalities in the country with their innovations, intelligence, talents, industriousness and honesty.

The nucleic personality of the group, Mr Nazrul Islam Mazumder, who has now been leading the Bangladesh Association of Banks (BAB), the apex forum of the commercial banks of the country, and is honoured as one of the most illuminated business tycoons in the garment business in the country, became the honourable Chairman after the demise of the founder Chairman. Under his leadership, BAB has emerged as an effective platform for exchanging views on problems being faced by the banking sector of Bangladesh and for formulating common policy guidelines in addressing such problems.

EXIM Bank starts functioning from 3rd August, 1999 with its name as Bengal Export Import Bank Ltd. On 16th November, 1999, it was renamed as Export Import Bank of Bangladesh Ltd. with Mr Alamgir Kabir as the Founder Advisor and Mr Mohammad Lakiotullah as the Founder Managing Director respectively with their long experience in the financial sector of our country. By their pragmatic decisions and management directives in the operational activities, this bank, in no time, earned a secure and distinctive position in the banking industry in terms of performance, growth, and excellence in management. Under the leadership of Mr Lakiotullah, the Bank migrated all of its conventional banking operation into Shariah Based Islami Banking in July 2004.

In the year 2006, Mr Kazi Masihur Rahman became the Managing Director of the bank when Mr Lakiotullah left the bank after completion of his successful 7 years as MD. Mr Kazi served the bank for next five years. Under his leadership, the bank moved to a state-of-the-art centralized IT platform with world renowned core banking software TEMENOS T24 running on two modern data centres along with alternate delivery services like ATMs and SMS banking.

On 25th August, 2011, Mr. Md. Fariduddin Ahmed joined the bank as Managing Director. With his long banking experience, EXIM Bank ensured full compliance in respect of capital adequacy and asset quality. After his retirement, Mr Ahmed continued his service for EXIM Bank as Advisor from 27th July 2012.

An Islamic banking scholar Dr Mohammed Haider Ali Miah initiated a new era succeeding Mr Fariduddin Ahmed on 25th July, 2012 as the first ever Managing Director from the EXIM staff. Under his far-sighted leadership, EXIM Bank not only achieved excellence in performance in almost all arenas of its activities but also gained confidence to place itself as one of the dynamic banks through delivering transparent and standard banking services to the customers in a compliant manner. He had continued his successful career for long 10 years until he retired on 15 September 2022.

With the commitments of concrete-built resilience of the bank and tailor-made services for its dear customers, a foreign trade maestro Mr Mohammad Feroz Hossain succeeded Mr Mohammed Haider Ali Miah as Managing Director & CEO on 16th September, 2022. With these objectives, he has been overhauling and fine-tuning job processing and service delivery mechanism for finer customer experience. At the same time, he has been working on restructuring its asset and deposit composition for ensured sustainability. In all, this forward-looking foreign trade veteran is instrumental in offering international standard banking and service experience within national frontiers.
