Bilal Munir Sheikh Appointed as CCO of PIA

Bilal Munir Sheikh, former Vice President of Jazz (formerly Mobilink) has joined Pakistan International Airlines as its Chief Commercial Officer, we have checked.

His appointments was confirmed by Sher ali khan, spokesperson of Aviation Division.

Bilal, a renowned name in telecom sector, has been part of senior management positions at various telecom companies. He brings along 24 years of experience in commercial, marketing, sales and customer care.

He is best known for his role at Jazz (then it was Mobilink) where he successfully lead the Marketing & Business Development of the company from 1 million customers at the time of his joining to over 38 million customers and growth of annual revenues from $180 million to $1.2 billion.

He was lately leading ERP Solutions provider as its CEO.

Coming with telecoms background and joining PIA, a rather less dynamic yet equally challenging opportunity, is definitely going to put Bilal to the test.

Unlike his previous roles, PIA remains engulfed with plentiful of political and situational happenings that are going to pose serious challenges for him.

But then that’s probably why he’s picked and placed into a leading position to change the direction of a company that was once our national pride.

  • If he is selected on merit and his success history is open to the public, fair enough a young blood will work energetically well. I differ with the government that old is gold but old after 65 is not always gold,most of the time it is rusted.I find people in my age still having seat which is completely wrong in my view.If a person has good n bold CV with very high capabilities and his achievement are remarkably magnificent then he must be selected for management or finance handling courses for new comer young officers.
    Since many year I did’t see any bold active and robust face in our diplomatic core on international front except ABDUL BASET our ambassador to India.There must be very confident,clever,intelligent n bold a bit aggressive and pursuant diplomats should be selected to get enhanced our image overseas. In some countries Pakistan needs to improve the polite aggressiveness which is very urgent now a days.There are some very important African and Arab countries where our man power is not on menial jobs there we must find a place for bold intelligent diplomats. At the end I wish BILAL MUNIR SHEIKH A VERY SUCCESSFUL FUTURE in heading the PIA,a name use to be in excellence.
