Aamer has always loved two things: working with technology and helping people. When his role as a highly technical consultant limited his ability to dig into the “why” that could solve his client’s problems, he left to get his MBA. Then the opportunity to leverage technology to help businesses on multiple levels brought him to Two Roads.
An independent study with the IT department in high school and backstage work for the theater program led Aamer to pursue an incredibly unique bachelor’s degree at Carnegie Mellon University – information systems and drama: production and stage management. Aamer was also deeply involved in student life and volunteered as an EMT, applying his care for people to positively impact lives.
After graduating he worked at West Monroe in Seattle as a technology consultant on the cloud and infrastructure team. He enjoyed the highly technical work, but felt he wasn’t getting the opportunity to really make an impact for his clients. With a desire to learn more about the strategy and business side of technology consulting, Aamer headed back to Carnegie Mellon and earned his MBA from the Tepper School of Business.
Interviewing with several consulting firms, Aamer considered what he wanted both professionally and personally. Larger firms offered the opportunity to travel and flex technical expertise, but Two Roads offered something different. He could not only use his technology background, but also be involved in strategy development and product management for major clients. In addition, the Two Roadies he spoke with during the interview process were more personable than elsewhere and seemed to genuinely care about ensuring a mutual fit. Aamer chose Two Roads, the team that got him excited about returning to consulting.
Since joining, Aamer has been able to pursue two of his favorite things by helping a leading automotive manufacturer client develop a technical product that truly helps the end user. He enjoys seeing projects all the way through and developing strong relationships with both his coworkers and clients. On a personal level, Aamer appreciates the support he receives from all levels of the company, including partners, and that Two Roads prioritizes employee growth and work-life balance.
Aamer is thriving as a Two Roadie – we’re so glad he decided to join our team!
