From Afghanistan to Global Security: A Journey of Experience and Commitment


I am excited to share with you the story behind Vanguard Global, a company that represents my lifelong dedication to security, intelligence, and making a difference in fragile and conflict-affected regions. Today, I want to take a moment to reflect on my journey, from my role as the former head of Afghan intelligence and minister of interior to my current position as co-founder and CEO of Vanguard Global. Join me as we explore the path that led us to where we are today.

The collapse of the Afghan Republic in August was driven by complex political circumstances. As part of Vanguard Global, we acknowledge the dedicated Afghan security personnel who worked diligently and demonstrated exceptional professionalism. Despite the challenges they faced, their expertise remains invaluable. We are committed to supporting them during this transitional phase and providing opportunities to utilize their skills in areas such as community policing, police training, logistical support, information management, and demining. By leveraging their experiences, Vanguard Global aims to make a positive impact in fragile and conflict-affected regions, fostering global peace, stability, and security

Embracing a Vision:

As I stepped into leadership roles in Afghanistan's intelligence and interior sectors, I witnessed the critical importance of effective security solutions in protecting communities and fostering stability. It was during those challenging times that I realized the significance of utilizing my experience and knowledge on a global scale.

Driven by the desire to preserve the expertise and skills of seasoned Afghan leaders, Vanguard Global was born. As co-founder and CEO, I assembled a team of battle-tested professionals with over 20 years of experience in defense, security, intelligence, and information management.
