Zubair Umar, a brother of prominent Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Asad Umar, who was working as Chairman of the Board of Investment (BoI), has been made chief of the Privatisation Commission (PC), but his appointment is yet to be officially notified, a senior official told The News.
Zubair Umar, a political appointee, was made BoI chairman five months back in July this year. Prior to his appointment, he used to assist the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on economic issues and is a party card-holder. Before joining the PML-N, he served IBM for 25 years in senior positions.
He will now have a significant role in the Cabinet Committee on Privatisation (CCOP) and faces the uphill task of fetching a good price, using his connections in the international corporate world, for the state-owned entities that are to be sold as part of the government policy.
