Microsoft Pakistan has appointed Nadeem A. Malik as its new GM Pakistan, we have checked with sources. He will be assuming his office in third week of this month.
Mr. Nadeem A. Malik, who was working as VP-FSI at Huawei Enterprise has already resigned from his position, we have checked.
Nadeem A. Malik had been with Huawei Technologies for past four years. He was hired to head Huawei’s newly launched Enterprise Business Group in 2011. He successfully raised Huawei Enterprise into main stream of ICT principal vendors.
Nadeem A. Malik joins Microsoft Pakistan to head the company with around USD 30 million dollars in annual revenues.
Nadeem Malik is joining the software firm at a time when it is generating major share of the revenue through private sector on account of anti-piracy drives.
We will have to see if Mr. Malik will redo the strategy for commercial sector or the company will continue to harvest short-term revenues by litigating banks and SMEs.
Nadeem Malik is likely to tap public sector that is humongous in potential and has the capacity to bring revenues for the company for longer-duration.
Mr. Malik is also expected to expand Microsoft’s cooperation with HEC through which it offers discounted solutions and services to students across the country.
