I started in UK Cards which was an opportunity for me to make a significant difference in a different market from the US. It was new and exciting.
Family and friends – and a desire to keep true to my moral compass.
I came to the US in 1978 from Pakistan to go to college with $900 cash (no scholarship) and a one-way ticket.
Cleaning toilets at McDonalds. Learned that no job is below anyone as long as one sees a brighter future.
My teams working to turn around businesses both in the UK and US.
Always prioritizing for the long term so that I leave a business better than the one I inherited.
