MAKING THE PITCH
After starting his career at IBM and finding his footing as an entrepreneur, Mohammed Hasan Tarek (B.B.A. ’99) is focusing on his passion for cricket as the owner of one of the sport’s newest professional teams, the Atlanta Fire.
As a boy in Bangladesh, Mohammed Hasan Tarek marked the seasons with sports. In the dry winter, cricket was the game of choice. Soccer, less affected by weather, was almost all you could play in the summer rainy season.
When he was around 7 years old, Tarek’s father, who managed a textile mill, asked the workers to carve a cricket bat and wickets for his son.
