Telenor to Get Ali Raza Mehdi as VP HR

Ali Raza Mehdi, former Vice President HR and Admin of Mobilink, is reportedly in talks with Telenor to head its Human Capital Division, we have confirmed with our sources.

Human Capital Division at Telenor or otherwise termed as HR and Admin was previously headed by Nayab Baig, who had resigned a week ago, reportedly due to differences with top management over an issue involving Salman Tariq, Director Security.

Ali Raza Mehdi has served Mobilink as VP HR and Admin. Mehdi had resigned from his position at Mobilink in November 2009 to join Metro.

We are told that Mr. Mehdi has resigned from Metro two days ago.

Telenor’s spokesperson has confirmed us that they are searching for a top notch professional for heading Human Capital Division. He didn’t deny our query but said that no final decision has been taken in this regard, as of now.

    I hope Telenor will not have the same Semi Govt culture like Mobilink has at Ali’s time. He is not a good line manager! :)

  • Usman

    i dont believe that telenor will take anymore mobilink people, the dominance of mobilink in Telenor Pakistan is obvious, unless they intend to merge companies and Aamire Ibrahim is going to become the new CEO

  • waffi

    question for telenor is not who joins, question and challenge is whether telenor can maintian or go beyond the standards of excellence when VP HR has resigned.

    My best wishes for Telenor Pakistan and its HR Team. Real test of Integrity is now being faced by the team.

    • Faisal Khan

      well i can say anyhting is better than the previous corrupt VP HR – he was giving jobs to his pals and special treatment to undeserving staff, i am sure this is going to be a better time than before.
