Shaukat Raza Mirza-From Exxon To Engro

Shaukat Raza Mirza

Shaukat Raza Mirza wrote a book “from Exxon to Engro” which chronicles and documents his endeavors as he orchestrated the first employee buyout in Pakistan’s corporate history. This employee buyout was unique in many ways and was an unprecedented concepts for many of stakeholders from Pakistan.

Mr. Shaukat Mirza not only handled it well but took all stakeholders on board and created a success story, Engro. Today, Engro is one of the largest business entities of Pakistan and it was all possible because of his visionary leadership. He didn’t start a business on his own like many other entrepreneurs but his work in creating Engro from Exxon is nothing short of what entrepreneurs do.

Mr. Shaukat Mirza also served as Managing Director Pakistan State Oil (PSO) where he was tasked with transforming this institution and once again he proved his abilities amazingly well. He transformed PSO into a professional corporate entity and revamped its policies and procedures on modern lines.

His work as corporate visionary which he also chronicled in his famous book, will always be an inspiration for Pakistani professionals.

Unfortunately this talented Pakistani mind was tragically murdered in 2002.
