Twice a year, we are proud to celebrate and recognize employees that have been promoted in to a new role. As such, we are excited to continue to introduce some of our newly promoted colleagues. Throughout the remainder of this month, we will spotlight a few of these individuals in celebration through this #ProtivitiPromos series. Next up in our series, from co-op to Managing Director, meet Muazzam from our Philadelphia office!
Years at Protiviti: “14+”
Path to Protiviti: “I first joined the Technology Risk Consulting practice of Arthur Andersen as a co-op in the fall of 2001. Once Protiviti was formed, I was asked to join the Security Team in the Philadelphia office. I graduated from Drexel University in spring of 2003 with a triple major (Management Information Systems, Economics, and International Business), and joined Protiviti in May 2003″
Current Solution and/or Industry focus: “Technology Consulting – Security & Privacy”
What do you enjoy about building your career at Protiviti? “Protiviti is a career driven environment. I love the fact that Protiviti is just as committed to my career advancement as I am.”
How are you celebrating this important milestone in your career? “We had a big get together with extended family to celebrate this significant milestone. This was particularly a proud moment for my parents, seeing how far their kids have come from the day when they immigrated to U.S., leaving behind their entire life for a promise of better future for their kids. For them and for me, this milestone was the realization of the American Dream.”
Outside of work, what do you enjoy? “I love spending time with my family, I have two girls, 6 and 8, and they are very demanding with my time outside work, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!”
Who has contributed to your success or been a mentor to you during your Protiviti career? “I would have to say my Managing Director, mentor and role model, Scott Laliberte.” Scott is our Global Security & Privacy Solutions leader.
What are some of your most memorable Protiviti experiences? “This is a difficult one since there are so many memories, but, one of my most memorable experiences would have to be the team paintball outing we had where I get to paintball down my boss!”
As someone who has worked with Muazzam over the past four years of my career, I want to extend a very special congratulations on this well-deserved milestone! It’s particularly exciting to see that Muazzam has grown from co-op to Managing Director with Protiviti. Congrats!
