  • I have started my Civil Engineering career , as beginner, under Mr. John supervision and worked about four years with him in UAE. He showed and taught me many things related to construction and engineering field and even daily life as well. He is very hardworking, competent and the same was expecting from all of his subordinates. nowadays, i am working in different organization but still he is my first option to take advice regarding making any decision about my career or joining the new organization. His famous slogan still echoing in my ears, Zaheen! " Concrete today not tomorrow" .... In nutshell, he is a leader not manager, he is an asset to any organization and knows what candidates will fit into which company through his vast hands on experience in many sectors.
