Mr Martin Mohammed is Founder and President of the United States African Chamber of Commerce (USACC) Mr. Mohammed is from Somalia and was among those whose lives were forever changed by the civil war. He came to the United States as a refugee in 1998 and settled in Minnesota. Prior to his arrival in the United States, he worked for 8 years in Kenya helping in the coordination and management of the resettlement of refugees from Somali, Sudan, and Rwanda. In Somalia, Martin received his degree in Economics from Somalia National University and had been working the banking sector.
He completed his Bachelors in Business Administration again in Minnesota at National American University, and an MBA in Business Management from the University of St. Thomas. He also holds special certifications in Financial Management, Credit Management, and Islamic Financial Management.
In 2000, Martin established a successful economic development nonprofit organization (Immigrant Credit Education and Financial Counseling Agency – ICEFCA) that was a pioneer in financial literacy services. At a time when few nonprofits provided financial literacy services, Martin recognized the vital role systems education and basic financial knowledge play for his community and their ability to succeed. Through this work he has been a visionary and tireless advocate for the economic advancement of African immigrants.
Today, Martin continues to implement his vision and passion to elevate African immigrant communities. He has most recently engaged in the restructuring of his organization in Minnesota as the African Chamber of Commerce (ACC). The ACC’s mission is To accelerate the development of African businesses, entrepreneurs, and families so that they may thrive within American economic and social systems. Martin has further elevated his vision through the creation of the U.S. African Chamber of Commerce.
