Aamir Aka (born 1975) is a British-Pakistani businessman currently based in the Middle East. He is the Founder and CEO of Adivo Consulting, Adivo Search & Selection and Adivo Manpower Supply.
Aamir moved to London in 1986 at age 11 with his family, having previously lived in Egypt and the UAE. Aamir's father spent 25 years working as an International Banker travelling the world in the 1980’s and 90’s before establishing his own Finance business in London which he retired from in 2013. His mother is a dedicated housewife who invested all her time and efforts in raising her four sons who are now enjoy flourishing International careers. Aamir studied at the British International School in Cairo till the age of 11 and then at Highgate Boys School in London thereafter. At school, Aamir completed his GCSE’s and A-levels whilst enjoying an active sporting life playing for the school’s first eleven football, cricket and rugby team. In addition, Aamir captained the school Water Polo team as well as the Eton Fives team on several occasions.
At age 16, while still at secondary school, Aamir established his own designer Menswear business in London after learning from his experience of weekend working at the leading menswear retailer, Cecil Gees. Selling formal suits and other designer clothes from a friends warehouse/garage, Aamir paid for his way through A-level and University as well as put some money aside to go towards a deposit he would put on his first London flat after finishing university.
At age 18 in 1993, Aamir went on to read Management/Business Studies/Economics at City University Business School in London. In his second year, Aamir was elected as President of the University Student Union. A position he relinquished in his third year after completing his summer internship at Coopers and Lybrand in 1995. A summer with Coopers confirmed to Aamir that he was suited to a life in Advisory and enjoyed the client interface aspect of working life. Rejecting the offer of a permanent role in Audit with Coopers and Lybrand, Aamir applied for the Graduate Development Programme at Andersen Consulting (now known as Accenture). In 1996, Aamir joined Andersen Consulting and worked with them on over a dozen projects till 2001 within the Supply Chain Practice.
In 2001, Aamir left Andersen Consulting to start his own Management Consulting Business – Adivo Consulting.
Adivo Consulting is a leading Management Consulting firm specializing in the area of Operational Improvement and Performance Excellence.
