The faces of the IT industry – 1

July 2, 2008 at 7:11 am 5 comments

I thought it might be nice to bring to you over a period of time the faces of the local IT industry – a few at a time. Those of you who know these people may add your views about them if you so wish. I will only do a one-liner that, in my opinion, describes them to the tee.

Ashraf Kapadia, Managing Director, Systems Ltd

The Voice of Reason

Mohammad Sohail, CEO, TPS Private Ltd

The most well-dressed CEO in IT

Abbas Khan, Director, Abacus Consulting

An air of sophistication bundled with classic movie star looks

Zafar Khan, CEO, Sofizar

Resident Money Spinner who gives new meaning to the term “make money while you sleep”

    @Jehan: “a one-liner that, in my opinion, describes them to the tee.”

    Curiously, only one of the First Four (well, actually, we know so many others from the pictures you have posted in the past) is wearing a tee in fact. What does that indicate about the mindset of the industry?

    I think we will see new standards for the dress code of PASHA CEO’s at the upcoming PASHA Career Expo….
