Before joining USG in 1999, Mr. Khan was a consultant with McKinsey & Company, where he served global clients on a variety of projects including acquisition analysis, supply chain optimization, and organization redesign.

“We are extremely pleased to have an executive with Fareed’s extensive background joining our senior management team,” said Phipps. “We are confident that Fareed will provide strong leadership to our finance organization and will continue to build on the solid financial disciplines that are already in place. Fareed will also bring a wealth of business experience to the leadership team in driving our strategic growth agenda.”
