Nazar Toktonaliev, Program Finance Analyst at Seaspan
I came to Columbia College in 2009 to study in the Business UT program at CC. I am originally from Kyrgyzstan. Spent two years at CC (I think I even received a Scholarship from CC). Transferred to SFU Beedie Business School in 2012 and graduated with concentration in Accounting in 2014. Earned my CPA since then, worked in Accounting/Finance in multiple public and private companies in transportation/aviation industries. Worked on my own e-commerce business with another CC alumni for about year or so. Currently employed as a Program Finance Analyst at Seaspan.
