Business Analyst - Minneapolis, Minnesota
Prior to Astra, Faraz was part of a unique IFS implementation which involved a consortium of local companies that represented a large multi-national organization. Over the course of about four years, he became the resident SME for the Supply Chain and Manufacturing areas of IFS. Whilst he worked on this project, he was also the manager of a Distribution & Procurement team, which allowed him to experience the IFS implementation from both a user and a management perspective.
On a more personal level, Faraz currently resides in the greater Minneapolis area although he is originally from Chicago. His parents and siblings still reside in Illinois, so he makes frequent trips there. He is a sports fan and still follows his Bears even though they haven't been to the playoffs since 2011 (there's always next year!). Faraz likes to stay active and enjoys hiking and kayaking and is debating if he should make his 2nd skydiving trip!
