Update: The world renowned cricketer Wasim Akram joined Careem Pakistan as an honorary CEO but only for one day. So, we won’t be seeing any radical changes in the management of the ride-sharing company.
The initiative is a goodwill gesture on the part of the company as Junaid Iqbal jokingly announced on Facebook that he’ll be playing golf for the day while Wasim Akram would take care of the whole company and its operations in Pakistan.
Here’s a look at the announcement made through Facebook Live:
Junaid Iqbal announcing Wasim Akram as the Honorary CEO of Careem Pakistan
Posted by Careem on Saturday, 15 April 2017
A leaked picture of Careem contract has been circulating the internet stating Wasim Akram as the honorary CEO of Careem Pakistan – effective 16th April 2017.
Both parties have refused to comment. If true, this could be the strangest career move for the Sultan of Swing. Well at least, the Captains of the ride-sharing company will now have the most experienced Captain of Pakistan.
