In a career spanning 39 years, have taken on complex and demanding challenges in multiple and diverse fields and continued to perform with exceptional ability and results. One’s experience extends from early work with the nascent chemical fertilizer industry in Pakistan and media, and more extensively with Aviation, Communications and Automotive Industry.
In these challenging career experiences, one was a member of the pioneering management teams of each company that setup the four multinational organizations namely Esso Pakistan Fertilizer Co. Ltd., Hinopak, Mobilink and Volvo in Pakistan.
The hands-on start-up experiences, in the numerous organizations that I have been involved in have given me valuable skills, knowledge, know-how and experience to set up corporate entities and organizations. One’s abiding and single minded interest has always been in building, developing and managing dynamic management teams that have delivered outstanding results.
My career growth and experience has developed and been gained almost in equal measure, both within Pakistan and abroad. Ones experience in four key areas, with the Esso Pakistan Fertilizer Co Ltd, as District Sales Rep, PIAC, U.K. in Sales and Marketing, London and as their District Sales Manager in Glasgow, with Hinopak Motors Limited and Volvo Pakistan Ltd., as General Manager Marketing and with Mobilink as Executive Director Marketing, has given one valuable insight and growth in management; managing all aspects, from decision making through to execution by the concerned team managers, in planning and budgeting, marketing services, public relations and after sales support. These core activities were my direct responsibility in all of the management assignments one undertook during the course of my career.
