Rashid Khan appointed as PTCL CEO

ISLAMABAD: The PTCL Board of Directors in its meeting on Tuesday appointed Rashid Khan, currently the chief executive of Ufone, to the post of PTCL CEO from March 2.

PTCL CEO Dr Daniel Ritz decided to leave the company owing to personal reasons upon completion of his three-year contract on March 1, 2019, in order to reunite with his family in Europe.

On the occasion, Dr Ritz said, “It has been a privilege and an honour to lead PTCL and the PTCL Group through a period of significant transformation. I am proud of what we have achieved as a team and the financial results announced today with PTCL returning to top line growth for the first time after several years of revenue decline are a testimony to this.”

The PTCL Board of Directors thanked Dr Ritz for his exemplary leadership in the past three years and the associated business results. They said Daniel’s decision to return to Europe to reunite with his family is understandable.

  1. Rashid Khan should take initiatives for pensioners as well as regular transferred employees for their salaries which is stopped for last 11 years

  2. Employees of PTCL are suffering in discrimination in terms of salaries, pensions and perks in comparison of other organizations since 11 years. Rashid Khan must stop third party hiring hierarchy and all existing hired third party employees must be transferred to PTCL Payroll and eradicate the employees problems than company will lead towards success.

    PTCL employees having optimist approach and hoping that this time our CEO “Mr. Rashid Khan” will do great for them and company will break all previous records in generation of Revenue and maintaining Companies name in good book.

    its very angrly said that teh worse speed of your ptcl service irritated and distrubed me since 06 july 2020 till date.
    i called your PTCL helpline but your un skilled and untrained staff didnt solved my problem , i recieved a call on 17 july 2020 at 01:21 from your company representative via 01218 he was looking totally ill and upset and he didnt know how to talk with customers , he wasted my time and was miserable type person , when i said him that i shall call your CEO for the solution of my EVO device in response he told me in a rude way that no one help and solve my problem where ever i go.
    so in this regard i am sending this message that why not my internet speed matters and concerns solve by your team.
