“Imran is the talent whisperer who recruited me from Facebook in Menlo Park to Careem in Dubai. He builds long-term relations with many of the senior and executive talents to help them connect with the right role fit in terms of aspirations, values, and strengths. Equally, he understands the companies he is serving and is passionate to help them grow.

I worked with him to close on senior and rock star talent for Careem where he has consistently delivered. An entrepreneur himself in founding Talent Seed, he has an entrepreneurial approach to get things done and to find talent-company fit!”

Mohamad Charafeddine

VP of Product

“I have known Imran for the past 2 years and over this time built up a good working relationship with him. His knowledge in his field is better than a lot of technical recruiters and he would listen and understand exactly where I was at and what I was looking for. I have never repeated myself once with Imran which is a breathe of fresh air. His role suggestions have always been spot on and the career advice he has given me has been priceless. I have recommended him to companies and colleagues and they have not been disappointed. He would always be my first choice when looking for, or recruiting for a technical role.”

Jessica GilbertVP of Engineering

“If you are seeking new opportunities, or your company is aiming to attract the best talent: either way, Imran should be your top-of-mind choice. Since day one he proved to have a vast knowledge of the market and a sixth sense to identify the best match between candidates and companies. I'm impressed by his networking capabilities and how he guides you in every step of the process. Honest and direct, Imran gets deeply involved in the process to find the best scenario for both parties. 100% professional and even better person, if you need to find the best talent in the region, reaching out to Imran is a no-brainer.”

Marc GarciaDirector of Engineering

“Imran is a top notch executive acquisition specialist - connected at the highest levels focusing on the MENA region. On a personal level, it was a real pleasure - his energy, sincerity and someone who possesses a growth mindset and one of inclusion and diversity. Imran recruited me to Careem as well as other top execs and was such a pleasure to be around at work. Exceptional human being. I would highly recommend Imran to help your company or VCs to bring in top talent in their portfolio companies. Thank you Imran - I will miss working with you but I know our paths will cross again.”
