Taseer Badar

Chairman & CEO

“I founded ZT Corporate in 1997 because traditional marketplace opportunities did not align with my vision of exponential growth. I wanted to empower my clients with unique business opportunities, so I decided to create my own. We diversified our portfolio options to include healthcare and auto dealerships—areas where I know we can succeed and bring operational efficiency.”
