FIEL Mourns the Loss of Company President

UntitledOctober 2015 - Fairdeal Import & Export Ltd and the Bandeali family are grieving the loss of Akbar Bandeali, President of Fairdeal Import & Export Ltd.

Akbar passed away early morning of September 27th, 2015. Akbar left behind a great legacy and went peacefully. He was a vibrant and passionate person who impacted the lives of many people. His unique gift of encouragement extended beyond his work, as he was given the ability to see potential in others and bring out their best.

While Akbar was recognized for many accomplishments over his 72 years, some of his proudest moments were to help the elderly and the less fortunate. Akbar will be remembered for making one of the first major donations towards the Aga Khan University in the 1980’s. Aga Khan University, today, is a global organization and is recognized amongst the elite universities in the world. Akbar’s life was one of hard work, perseverance, wisdom and generosity.

FIEL – Fairdeal Import & Export Ltd will continue to operate by Akbar’s sons and daughters Arif Bandeali, Asif Bandeali, Munira Kasamali and Mumtaz (Taz) Tharoo. Condolences can be sent directly to arif@fiel.com and asif@fiel.com.
