Get to Know Abdul

Abdul was born and raised in Hyderabad, India. He earned his bachelor’s degree in business and marketing from Mysore University before finding his passion for recruitment.

He worked as a partnership builder in his previous companies, strengthening internal and external alliances to expand recruiting resources for clients’ hard-to-fill technical roles. It was in one of these partnerships that Abdul initially came to know his GreySource CEO & president Kim Anderson, and came to work with her for a Minnesota-based technical placement firm. 

Throughout his career, Abdul has been a stand-out top performer, leader and non-stop advocate for recruiting practices that were both client-centric and candidate-empowering. His drive for excellence and full inclusion in the technical hiring arena inspired him to gain credentials as both a C.D.R. and C.T.R. Additionally, Abdul keeps those skills honed as a member of the National Diversity Council and the Minnesota Talent and Recruiting Network (MNTRN). 

When it comes to particular passions, Abdul is all about mutually successful placements.  He thrives on saving his clients valuable time by sending them well-qualified candidates that harmonize with the organization’s mission and culture. And as a key player in GreySource’s multi-generational team and mission himself, Abdul knows the importance of your DEI goals. 

In his spare time, Abdul loves to play snooker, watch The Office, and spend time with his beautiful wife, Afreen, and their two daughters.
