Hamid Sheikh - Chief Executive Officer

Hamid Sheikh - Chief Executive Officer

Fruit Identity: Jackfruit

Big. Tough. Packed with a punch. Meeting Hamid is like eating a Jackfruit. It’s an intimidating fruit, but once you get past the tough skin, you’ll be greeted by several little morsels of fruits in the form of ideas. Hamid is the idea man at Citrus; a 15 minute conversation with him is bound to leave you with at least 3 business ideas. An entrepreneur to the core, his decade worth of experience in technical recruitment and ability to build relationships (rather than associations) is what drives Citrus. 

Hamid lives with his family in Lahore. He loves being able to change lives, giving ideas, going on long drives and having spellathons with his son. When he’s not working or enjoying good food, you can find him rooting for Manchester United and keeping a tab on global financial markets. 

 Haseeb Zafar - Chief Operating Officer

Haseeb Zafar - Chief Operating Officer

Fruit Identity: Pomelo

He might come across as perpetually sweet, but don’t be misled by that smile. Like a Pomelo, Haseeb embodies layers of flavours that will impress you – even if you’ve known him forever. The bitter exterior of a Pomelo is quintessentially Haseeb, who is known to be the Bad Cop to Hamid’s Good Cop (afterall, someone has to maintain order). Haseeb is the action man at Citrus. If Hamid comes up with an idea, Haseeb executes it; creating SOPs and organizing teams that will get the job done.

Haseeb lives with his family in the historical city of Lahore. He is a family man who loves to travel, play Cricket and take long peaceful walks at night with his wife. A true Lahori at heart, most of Haseeb’s thoughts are occupied by food – be it making it, eating it, or daydreaming about it; and much to Hamid’s chagrin, he supports Barcelona FC.
