Interview - Shahid Javed

Shahid Javed was born in Lahore, Pakistan in 1967. At the time of this interview, Shahid, 47, lives in Houston with his wife and two daughters. He is currently employed at BP in Houston, but the journey that brought him here is a fascinating story about a self-made man striving for the classic American dream: achievement and success through hard work and a little bit of luck. His path took him from Pakistan through Georgia Tech and Stanford and through several jobs at A.T Kearney, Transora, and others, along with several relocations before ending up at BP.
