Mian Shamim Anwar was the longest serving executive in the history of the company serving in the capacities of Executive Director, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of the Board. One of the scions of the Sargodha Group of Companies, Mr. Anwar is perhaps the single greatest reason for the continued excellence of Tariq Corporation.
MIAN SHAMIM ANWAR
A magnate of the sugar industry, Mr. Anwar served as the chairman of the Pakistan Sugar Mills Association for Punjab between 1984-1986 and then again in 1992-1994. Under Mr. Shamim Anwar’s leadership, Tariq Corporation was twice conferred the prestigious award of the Top 25 Companies of Pakistan. However, perhaps most of all, he is remembered today as a patron of education and healthcare, for his unprecedented and unwavering efforts to eradicate poverty in Jaranwala and elsewhere in Pakistan by establishing multiple educational and healthcare institutions that have served tens of thousands since.
MIAN MUHAMMAD ALI TARIQ
In his tenure as Management Director of Tariq Corporation Limited, Mr. Tariq laid the groundwork for the remarkable growth that the company has accomplished since. Years ahead of his time, by anticipating and then ensuring the development and incorporation of the latest technologies and systems at TCORP, he single-handedly transformed the company to the professional corporation it is today.
In particular, Mr. Tariq made efforts to proliferate high sucrose varieties in the area and establish cordial relations with the area’s farmers. To date, the company continues to enjoy the benefits of his contributions.
Mr. Tariq, an alumnus of the inaugural class of the Lahore University of Management Sciences, had been closely associated with the Alumni Association of the Lahore University of Management Sciences. He was also on the executive committee of the Pakistan Sugar Mills Association for Punjab and was the Chairman of the Institute of Sugarcane Research and Biological Control in 1997. Mr. Tariq was also unanimously selected by the members of the Pakistan Sugar Mill Association to represent Pakistan in the XXIII Congress of the International Society of Sugarcane Technologists. Apart from his contributions in the sugar industry, he was also a director on the boards of seven textile mills. Today, Muhammad Ali Tariq’s legacy lives on in the name of the charitable institutions, scholarships, and foundations.
