His Excellency Mohammed Fahim Hashimy is best known for organizing and establishing 1TV Media, the premium family entertainment TV channel in Afghanistan. In his new role he will be responsible for regulating and leading the telecommunications and technology sector for Afghanistan.
“Afghanistan could not have made a better selection to lead their Communication and Information Technologies agency than Mohammed Fahim Hashimy,” said Eric Montalvo, Founding Partner of the Federal Practice Group. “His vision and expertise will elevate Afghanistan’s technology efforts to the next level.”
Mr. Hashimy launched 1TV in 2010 and it has emerged as Afghanistan’s fastest growing impartial TV channel.
