Faheem began his career in management on the factory floor at the age of 20. Given the challenge of leading and managing a clothing manufacturing group that employed over 1,000 people, Faheem spent months working in the factory side-by-side with other employees. His highly conscientious and hands-on approach led him to implement a wide range of programs which increased productivity, decreased costs – all while managing the group’s day-to-day activities.
While the clothing manufacturing industry was rapidly changing and faced with a sagging export market, Faheem was able to profitably expand the manufacturing group’s business beyond its traditional markets.
Immediately prior to founding Springboarders in 2009, Faheem honed his strategic planning skills at LEVEL5 Strategic Brand Advisors, one of Canada’s premier brand strategy consulting firms. At LEVEL5 he worked with some of the country’s top business leaders, while executing several high-profile marketing and brand strategy projects for both North American and European clients.
As a business planner and strategic consultant, Faheem has completed several successful projects for clients in a wide range of industries, including Academic administration (Universities), Renewable energy (Alternative Fuels and Chemicals), Outsourcing (virtual) services, Packaged foods, Digital media & entertainment, Book publishing, Transportation & Logistics, Digital signage, Word-of-mouth marketing and Online directory publishing, among others.
Faheem has an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business, where he also served as Executive Director of the Ivey Entrepreneurship Club. For a more detailed professional profile, click here.
