As I met this 38 years young hunk with athletic build up for the first time in my life, I started experiencing positive vibrations as he looked professional to the core. After settling in his cozy cabin in a spic and span dealership office of OpenRoad Infiniti in Langley, the interface started.

When requested, why he chose Automobile Industry as a career he replied.” I love driving and be with people all the time. Being a challenging career, it always fascinates me” When asked to comment on his 17 years career in Automobile and that too with almost one employer, I found him partly losing connection with me and he was revisiting his humble beginnings as a Sales Executive in the year 2000. Then he stated, “My beloved organization gave me the level playing ground and facilitated me to give my best.” When requested on his style of management he stated, “A Leader accept challenges. I focus on the things I can control.

Always try to stay productive and effective by focusing on the things, I need to address in a stipulated time frame. I believe in Team work and respect everyone around me.” Mr. Khan went up the rung of his career slowly, surely and steadfastly by proving himself at every step. Being mentally strong, he balances his emotions with logic so that he can calculate each challenge/risk he faces. He is always willing to step outside his comfort zone and grab opportunities that help him reach his career goals in succession. Change is the only constant factor in life. He reminisces how the automobile Industry has really changed over the years. He further added,” Now the customer is more knowledgeable and savvy about what he wants and very well understands what his requirements are. That way our job is more challenging. This man loves challenges. When challenged he becomes more focussed. At OpenRoad Infiniti, Langley his strength is impeccable Customer Care and a loyal and satisfied clientage. He boosts of having the best automotive professionals in BC, with a customer centric showroom. As an ocular proof, this Auto Grouphas earned a reputation as a people first organization with consecutive Best Employer in Canada (2012-2016) and Best Managed Company (2012- 2015) awards, as well as the prestigious CADA Innovator of the Year Laureate (2012) award.On hobbies front, apart from Wrestling, he loved playing cricket in his college days as well as in Canada. Now, since 2015, he is serving as a President of a local Cricket Club named, Pak-Can Cricket Club. Still a better chair awaits him. Only a matter of time that he gets another nod.
