Azhar Iqbal Mir

Chairman and Chief Mentor 

Our firm is named after the late, Azhar Iqbal Mir. He was a true visionary and a mentor to so many. Whereas our vision keeps growing along with our services and the geographies we serve, our values remain the same and these are a direct influence of the teachings of Mr. Azhar Iqbal Mir (A.I. MIR).  

 

Managing Partner's Note:

When starting our consulting business, one of the easiest decisions to make was the name. I knew we had to name it after my father. He was alive then and we had the privilege that he remained our chairman and chief mentor for over a decade. His everlasting contributions to the business, our clients and to each of us have made us who are today and will continue to guide us in the future. My father, my ideal, my mentor and our chairman is gone but his lessons live on.
