Zahid’s professional background includes nearly 10 years at companies such as Cap Gemini E&Y, Morgan Stanley, and J.P. Morgan. Primarily in financial control, Zahid’s strong deliverables saw him quickly selected for JP Morgan’s Management Development program.
Since completing an MBA in 2010, Zahid keenly engages in social impact initiatives and startups. He first managed the Dubai arm of an inaugural global CSR initiative, which today is known as The Hult Prize and partnered with the Clinton Global Initiative. Hult IBS was a fledgling business school at the time, for which Zahid was Founder and Global Lead of its largest student initiative. For 5 years, he independently grew the leadership to serve 3,000+ across 5 international cities. Just one of its many unique achievements is the raising of what remains a school-record $35,000 for charity.
Most recently Zahid was a Business Development Consultant for a startup working closely with charities globally to explore feasibility of providing specific dietary requirements. Successful projects have been implemented in Bangladesh, Rohingya, Syria, and soon in Yemen.
