Farooq Alam Khan
Manager of Asset Management
In 2015 Farooq joined the TGR as a part-time recycling worker. Fast forward 4 years and he’s now an Asset Management Manager leading the whole AM team.
Prior to settling in Australia, Farooq owned his own computer business in Pakistan for seven years. Then he decided to relocate his family to Australia and complete his Masters of Computer Science in Perth ECU.
The father of three loves all the things technology does Muay Thai boxing 2-3 days/week and believes reusing and recycling computers is crucial for next generations to strive.
Sharka started with TGR in September 2018 to help us with our website, sales, marketing and overall communications.
She’s originally from a beautiful city of Prague but moved to Australia nearly nine years ago to fulfil her dream of living near the ocean. It’s only fitting she was soon after becoming an Aussie, nicknamed a Shark.
Her extensive agency background – both from Europe & Perth, gives her a wide range of skills which she now utilises towards helping to combat the environmental issues here in WA. “Focusing on e-waste makes me feel excited and really purposeful. Given my agency background, I’ve been using technology to its fullest and it feels great being able to influence others to do the right thing and dispose of their electronics properly.”
Sharka is also a fitness instructor and a yoga teacher and in her spare you find her camping, beaching it, mixing essential oils or yoging and meditating.
