ABOUT ME

 Born and brought up in Karachi, Zain moved to Dubai in January 2007. He did his O ‘Levels from the City School in Karachi and graduated with honors from Staffordshire University in the United Kingdom. Currently a certified member of the British Institute of Facilities Management and pursuing a PMP certification from the Project Management Institute. Zain has recently also started a technology start-up in Dubai by the name of Magnus Technologies.

Zain’s professional experience in Karachi revolved around educational institutions. He was first a part of the CAS School and later his alma mater, the City School – both in the field of administration and operations.

Having graduated from Staffordshire in the field of Science in Computing, Zain’s career path in the UAE has ever since gyrated around facilities & community management, real estate and project management.

“I don’t believe education starts and ends in the classroom. It is a never-ending process and it really depends on the one’s willingness to learn new things.” ~ Zain Moosa

Zain compares his life to a roller coaster ride. Early professional life for him was not a bed of roses when one of his sister’s passed away and his father went into depression.

“There are certain incidents in one’s life that make you grow up overnight and this is exactly what happened to me. Alhamdulillah, God has been very kind.” ~ Zain Moosa

Even though Zain’s education was not in the field he chose to be his career path, he always had a passion for facilities and real estate. A perfect example of ‘like father like son’. Both, Zain and his father had separate tool boxes at home. One could only use the other’s tools after acquiring permission. Birthday gifts exchanged would be a drill machine or new tools!

“No university can give me a degree in comparison for what I have learnt from my father, Mehdi Moosa. He has, is and will always be my greatest teacher, guide, mentor, and guru.” ~ Zain Moosa
