Dr Donald Kaberuka is a Rwandan economist with over 40 years of experience working in banking and international trade.

Kaberuka is the former African Development Bank Chief Executive Office and President and  Harvard Kennedy School Center for Public Leadership (CPL) Hauser Leader-in-Residence.

Kaberuka is credited for dramatically expanding the reach and impact of AfDB, now widely regarded as the premier financial institution in Africa.

During his two terms as President, Kaberuka championed infrastructure development, doubled loans and grants in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, created opportunities for expanded support to small and medium-sized enterprises, and enhanced the Bank’s focus on gender.

Prior to joining the AfDB, Kaberuka served as Rwanda’s Finance Minister from 1997 to 2005, during which time he led the country’s successful economic reconstruction after the end of its civil war.

Kaberuka has a breadth of experience managing change at the highest level by navigating complex social, political, and financial challenges.
