Former Engro CEO Asad Umar is a revered figure in the corporate world. At just 50 years of age, he has achieved more than what many achieve in a lifetime. Having served as the youngest CEO and President of Engro Corporation for eight years during his 27 year career with the company, he literally transformed the business from a fertiliser company to a giant conglomerate. Undoubtedly, he was a vital force behind the company’s expansion.
With a well-paid job and an illustrious career, it’s hard to imagine someone at the top of the corporate ladder to quit it to join politics. But Asad did just that. In April 2012, he resigned from his post at Engro and joined Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI). Needless to say, he is a true patriot who has inspired many and made his countrymen proud of his remarkable achievements.
