He took what he learned and started another company just a few years after. Kamran was able to not only expand on his knowledge of information technology, but also on what it takes to be a leader. Soon after this experience, he moved to America. Starting from scratch with his wife wasn’t easy, but through his business ventures he learned that persistence is key and he applied this thinking as he adapted to life in the US. At Cloudforce, Kamran serves as a Senior Network Security Architect, where he’s part of a team that supports and encourages him in his role every day.
