He joined Pakistan Cables in 2008 and has helped lead and execute many of the company’s investments and strategy decisions and has been on the forefront of several landmark transactions for the company.

He carries an MBA degree from INSEAD and did his Bachelors degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He has previous experience working internationally in the US and Canada in the banking sector.

Pakistan Cable’s Chairman Mustapha Chinoy said, “Kamal’s vision combined with his commitment to serve the long term interests of the company, have fortified Pakistan Cables in the industry today.

He leaves a legacy of strong ethics and excellence that’s much needed in the evolving business environment today. I’d like to thank him, on behalf of the Board, for his contribution to the company.

“The Board is pleased to appoint Fahd K. Chinoy to the role. Having worked for Pakistan Cables in a variety of senior management roles, Fahd has demonstrated a deep understanding and passion of our business and the industry. The Board warmly welcomes Fahd to the role and wishes him every success.”

Given Kamal A. Chinoy’s vast experience in the industry, the Board of Directors has proposed that he assumes the role of an Advisor and assist the Company’s other initiatives.
