Zia Hasnain, CEO, Kilmers

Zia studied geography at University but soon realised his mistake! He discovered in the mid 70s that IT was becoming fashionable and chose this as a career. His first paid job was at the London Stock Exchange where he stayed for 5 years before moving to a number of large international telecommunication companies. However, the novelty of travelling overseas to far fetched exotic places such as Bermuda, Singapore, Japan soon wore off. Zia then decided to be his own boss and by the grace of God is now CEO of his own company called Kilmers Ltd. Kilmers is a successful international property management company with offices in the city and on Excel Marina.
