Mr. Shah has worked for more than 14 years within various government agencies in Pakistan. He currently serves as Assistant Inspector General in Peshawar where he is responsible for personnel management of more than 70,000 police officers. He previously led the Counter Terrorism Task Force of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police as Deputy Commandant of a highly trained elite force. In 2008 when militancy was at its peak in the region the team he led successfully thwarted terrorists’ plans to take over the District by engaging the local community through local elders. This model was later adopted in other parts of the Province and became known as “Dir Model.” He earned a Master of International Relations from the University of Peshawar. During his Fellowship at the University of Minnesota Mr. Shah hopes to investigate the organizational development and variables that influence change in management and study the best practices used in counterterrorism.
