    This is the kind of progressive news that warrants a genuine smile. Adnan is a thorough gentleman and a professional. PTCL might now become the service it was meant to be.

    Adnan is just overrated because he is FROM MIT and that’s it Jehanzeb is ok also not extraordinary no wonder they joined PTCL

      how can we judge someone without knowing ! Is it really a good thing to call someone over rated ? Even if this Adnan guy from MIT, still how many of us manage to get admission in MIT ? I don’t know him but I certainly would like to see PTCL change for good, which the previous management couldn’t ! So I hope that the new team will do something good. Let’s congratulate them for joining a sleeping giant and hope that they would be able to wake it up in time !!! PTCL has the name starting from Pakistan, so we should be positive about it !!

      Having known JT from Unilever days, tend to agree wit hjj813. Allah khair karay.
      BTW I wonder why and how big companies like PTCL bet on such job-hoppers who hardly deliver tangible results for their employer before making their next move
