10 Lessons From Sabbir Hasan Nasir of ACI Logistics

Nov 25, 2019

Sabbir Hasan Nasir is the Executive Director of ACI Logistics where he leads Shwapno, the leading retail brand in the country. Mr. Sabbir has a diverse career spanning multiple sectors and countries. He is also an author of four books – three of them are a series on Sufism and a poetry book entitled Podochinho.

Mr. Sabbir was born in Khulna where he spent a large part of his early life. Growing up, he was into music, math, and physics. He studied mechanical engineering at BUET, worked with Professor Dr. Jamal Nazrul Islam – the prominent Bangladeshi mathematical physicist, and cosmologist, then moved to business and went on to do an MBA, studied Sufism and recently has completed an executive program on management, innovation, and technology from MIT – Sloan School of Management.

A self-described designer and passionate student of Sufism, to be in a conversation with him is a little like wandering into a wonderland of tranquility, warmth, critical thinking and humility.

In a recent interview with Future Startup, he shares a set of simple yet effective life lessons from his years of experience on living a meaningful life. You can read the full interview here.
