We are very pleased to announce that we have opened two new offices located in the UK and Pakistan.
On the week of the 13th July, our franchise team ran a comprehensive induction programme for the new Managing Partners Nausherwan and Malik as well as their recruiters Irfan and Salman to expand the Antal services within the IT and Engineering sectors.
Naush and Muhammad are father / son and have joined hands in order to set-up their businesses in the UK and Pakistan. In order to support the business, Muhammad has also hired his two sons Irfan and Salman who will be the first of, we are sure, a very powerful team of recruiters.
Naush brings with him more than 14 years of experience in a variety of global roles in areas including strategy, marketing, business development, business/lean transformation, process improvement, working capital improvement, customer experience, change management, engineering and project/programme delivery. He has led a number of strategic initiatives, managed multiple and cross-functional teams and achieved breakthrough results for global industrial companies including ESAB (part of US-listed group Colfax Corp) and Alstom. This has earned him a reputation of being a “trusted adviser” for the CEO and the Executive team, able to “make things happen” and an inspirational coach/mentor for his fellow associates. Naush has an MBA from Ashridge Business School and BEng (Electronics) with first class honours from the University of Hull. He was an elected member of the Ashridge Alumni Council (2009-2012), responsible for membership strategy and hosting alumni events.
Malik has an illustrious career spanning over 30 years in the petrochemicals and Chemicals industries, where he worked in senior technical and corporate roles in major multinationals including ICI, Exxon Chemicals and BP (formerly Union Texas Inc) in Pakistan. Malik started his career from National Refinery in Pakistan, had a successful stint at BP working as senior manager for their oil and gas operations in Badin before being hunted to work in ICI Pakistan for senior management roles. There he set up ICI’s Polyester Fibre and Soda Ash expansion projects in an unprecedented time frame and under budgets. Malik had an accelerated career progression within ICI where he had the opportunity to successfully manage manufacturing operations as Works Manager and then finally promoted as the General Manager, Corporate Technical and Engineering, reporting directly to CEO and the Executive Board of ICI Pakistan. Malik was the chief architect responsible for bringing about ICI’s successful joint venture partnerships with leading power and automation technology groups including ABB. After an early retirement from ICI, Malik worked as business consultant operating from the UK providing services to a number multinational and the corporate clients based in the UK, Middle East and Pakistan.
We are confident that their high levels of enthusiasm, commitment and professionalism combined with our Antal model will be absolute dynamite. We warmly welcome this vibrant duo and their team to the Antal family and wish them every success.
