CEO (Aman Networks), Aman Foundation
Seven years ago, in 2008, Ahsan Jamil joined Arif and Fayeeza Naqvi on an inspirational journey of adventure, exploration and hope, called the Aman Foundation. The Aman Foundation is a not-for-profit business that aims to achieve impact through the relentless pursuit of sustainable, scalable and systemic development in areas of health and education. As its first CEO and one of the founding trustees, Ahsan helped to build this not-for-profit business from the ground up, successfully navigating early stage risks and building the Aman brand to represent quality & trust.
After nearly seven years as CEO of The Aman Foundation, Ahsan Jamil has recently moved into an international role to lead “Aman Networks”. The objective of the initiative is to build an international stakeholder engagement system and partnerships framework, and to enhance the resource mobilization capabilities of Aman Foundation to reach core segments globally to sustainably scale Aman’s two verticals, AmanHealth & AmanTech.
Ahsan has a degree in Mathematics and Economics from Reed College, USA. He started his career at E. F. Hutton on Wall Street, then Chase Manhattan Bank in Karachi, before spending four years in brand management and sales at Unilever, Pakistan. Then in 1991, Ahsan went down the entrepreneurial track and co-founded Ecopack Limited, a PET bottle manufacturing business that became a market leader and the primary supplier to both Pepsi and Coca-Cola in Pakistan. During his 17 years at Ecopack, phenomenal growth in the business was achieved and he successfully helped take the company public.
He chairs the boards of AmanHealth, AmanTech and is on the Advisory board of Acumen Pakistan.
