Sallim Dahman

Sallim Dahman is the Open Banking and Digital Identity Manager at Desjardins Group, the largest Canadian cooperative financial group. With nearly ten years of experience within his organization, where he has been at the heart of strategic, innovative and digital projects promoting financial autonomy, Sallim holds a Master’s degree in management and is currently completing a PhD in sociology. Intrigued by consumer behaviour and passionate about social sciences, this young manager hopes to play a part in the implementation of the Canadian Open Banking ecosystem. He is also involved in the discussion around the development of digital identity solutions. Being an advocate for both Open Banking and Digital Identity, he wants to make sure that these avenues are guided by the real needs of financial services customers and, on a larger scale, based on the reinforcement of the control by individuals over the sharing of their personal and financial information.
