Syed Faruque Ahmed is the current Chairman of aamra networks limited as well as aamra Companies (formerly known as The Texas Group Bangladesh) and is one of its founder shareholders. The aamra Companies are a dynamic, futuristic and leading business group in the country involved in a wide range of businesses sectors like the Garments & Textile, ICT, Lifestyle and HR Development. Faruque, a post-graduate in Finance, helped starting the opening companies of aamra as one of the founder shareholders. He was the Director Finance of the Group from 1985. After having played a key role in setting up the Group’s export oriented readymade garment business unit from 1985 to 1988, he left for USA in 1988 in pursuit of exploring the Group’s garment export market. Through his 4 years stay in the U.S., he garnered a much wider exposure to the garment industry, in particular the US garment industry, as well as gained a rare insight into the corporate America. Upon returning home, Faruque engaged himself back into the family business with an added zeal to improve the processes and operations; much from what he learnt in the US. He successfully implemented computer automation throughout the Group companies for MIS and Accounting that eventually had far reaching implications on the rapid growth and success of aamra Companies. His effort in establishing the vigorous use of IT throughout the organization, for example in initiating use of network computing in the areas of Accounting, Sales and Production, resulted in huge savings of time and resources, as well as immensely improved the dynamism and responsiveness of the Group. Faruque takes the lead in the internal development of the aamra organizations and plays an active role in continual improvements in Human Resources, Organizational Development, MIS and Corporate Governance. Over the years he has helped introduce a number of important and far-reaching initiatives.
