Mr Muhammad Amir Malik has been appointed as the new Managing Director at Clicksat (Pvt) Ltd. and will be taking charge of his new role by mid-November 2016. Clicksat, is involved in providing latest satellite broadband services and is keen to expand their operations all across Pakistan.
Amir Malik will also be taking additional charge of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) for REDtone Telecommunications Pakistan. REDtone is in the process of joining a consortium of renowned international telecom companies very soon to build and operate a submarine cable network.
The Pakistan landing of the submarine cable will be owned and operated by REDtone. Additionally, REDtone is aggressively launching Viptela’s secure technology that provides virtualization of the Wide Area Network (WAN) allowing companies and banks to build carrier agnostic, policy-controlled and cost-effective environment.
This transition means that Amir will be leaving his role as Chief Executive Officer of COMSATS Internet Services (CIS), where he has had a successful run for two years. He has been able to secure significant collaborations for CIS with leading organisations and successfully established the CIS Technology Park.
Last year, while talking to the More Magazine, Amir Malik said, “After joining COMSATS Internet Services, my main emphasis has been the spread of Wireless Broadband Services as this area is known to be our strength since inception. In this domain, we do not compete with conventional operators, and this is why we do not target the home users.
Previously, Amir served as Member IT at Ministry of Information Technology, Managing Director at Pakistan Software Export Board and Chief Executive Officer of Pak Datacom Limited, Pakistan.
He has worked as Head of Regulatory Compliance at Ufone, PTML and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) in the capacity of Director (ICT). His earlier professional experience includes working with SAP AG, Air France, Schlumberger, and Alcatel CIT.
He has a Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering with Honors from National University of Science and Technology (NUST), Pakistan, and a Masters in Computer Science and Telecommunication Engineering with Honors from ENSIMAG, INPG, France. He is also an alumnus of Lawrence College, Murree.
With Amir Malik’s great insight into the Information and Communications Technology sector and Clicksats unique and innovative brand offerings, it can be expected to see new avenues of development and growth for the company.
