Hamid Malik’s family hails from the Indo-Pak Subcontinent, but he was born in Karachi in 1948. He came to the United States in 1970, and in just over a decade founded Amtrend.

Hamid was renowned for his dedication to his work, coupled with high business ethics. Regardless of how tired and busy he was a day earlier, he would always arrive at his office on time to set an example for his 90+ employees. He strongly believed that leadership was more than just rhetoric, and incorporated that same pragmatic and rational philosophy to all aspects of his life.

Politically and community-minded, Hamid spent as much time organizing fundraisers for various local political candidates at his gracious home or in public places, as he did arranging interfaith meetings to diminish differences amongst religious groups and ensure that harmony could prevail at all levels.

Outside of his family life, he helped many organizations financially and as an advisor while they were trying to achieve their agendas by using his contacts in the Consulate and the Embassy in the United States.

Today, sons Shawn and Waseem carry on their father’s vision, passion and unrelenting dedication to excellence, leading Amtrend into the next chapter of its story.
