MTM Batook Pandya Lifetime Achievement Award Winner 2019 Amjid Ali

Our Batook Pandya Lifetime Achievement Award winner has a total of 25 years’ retail, business, and Islamic banking experience. His professional career in financial services began in Nov 1986 when he joined Midland Bank as a management trainee.

The last 10 years of his career with HSBC were spent as UK Head and Senior Manager, HSBC Amanah the Islamic Financial Services Division of HSBC Group.  In this role, he and his team were recognised for their outstanding service and delivery of Islamic Financial Services in the UK and Globally.

Following advice from his medical team, he decided to take early retirement in June 2012 following a kidney transplant.   He is now an Independent Management Consultant working across a range of Private, Public, and Voluntary Sector organisations. One of his key partnership roles is that of Project Lead, ‘Transplantation within the framework of Shariah (Islamic Law)’ for NHS Blood and Transplant.

He developed a pioneering initiative he developed to engage Muslim faith leaders and community influencers to increase awareness and engagement amongst the diverse Muslim communities in the UK.

He has successfully secured the support of more than 250 key Muslim stakeholder groups across the UK including influential Islamic Scholars and Imams, Muslim Charities, Community organisations, and Clinical leads.  Amjid’s perseverance and hard work over the course of the last 5 years have led to the development of an updated religious edict (Fatwa) on Transplantation and Organ donation. 

This has been a key concern for the diverse Muslim communities and addresses many of the religious concerns that practising Muslims have about this issue.

He has also been actively involved in other community work on both a local and national level.  He has been a non-Executive Director of a local NHS Trust Board and is currently a member of several Strategic Advisory Boards Including ‘Taking Organ Donation to 2020’.

He Chaired, the Strategic Independent Advisory Group for Avon and Somerset Police and has been commissioned by the Constabulary to review its Independent Advisory Groups across the force area.

He was one of the core members of the Steering Group that drafted the Manifesto for Race Equality which led to the formation of the Mayoral Commission for Race Equality in Bristol.  He was instrumental in developing the selection process and along with 3 other community panel members appointed the current Commissioner for Race Equality.

An award is a form of honour, a kind of recognition aimed to felicitate one’s excellent contribution in a chosen field. An award is not only a great prestige or a mark of excellence but is also a tremendous boost for someone to strive and excel higher and aim for even bigger accomplishments in life. It is the ultimate token of recognition of the purest of talents and highest of achievements.

“As I entered the Bristol Marriott Hotel city centre, the energy in the lobby hit me. They often say your energy introduces you before you speak. Well, this is it, I said to myself, buzzing, empowering and, diverse. People across communities gathered, shared and networked, it was like the release of a world premiere.
Let me say that again, so it sinks in, it was empowering and world-class.
The evening created a community spirit; one that bonded each and every one of us in the room.
I can’t wait for more events like this that connect me to a community that is looking to rise together”…
