Abu Nahian


“Silence and smile are two powerful tools. Smile is the way to solve many problems and silence is the way to avoid many.” — Iris Johansen

ITAdOn’s CEO, Abu Nahian (aka “Shoumo”), originally from Barisal, Bangladesh, is exactly like his nickname, which means kindness, selflessness, and generosity. These virtues form the foundation of his leadership.

As a child, no toy was safe from Abu’s desire to deconstruct it and discover its inner workings. These exercises in divergent thinking, synthesis, and evaluation led to a passion for conquering systems of all kinds, culminating in information technology and the founding of IT Advisors Online.

Abu’s time spent working in Australia taught him the importance of forming close personal relationships, which helps him better serve his employees and his customers. One conversation with Abu will make it clear that he has a huge heart. It’s no wonder that his favorite song is “My Heart Will Go On.” We can assure you, the “heart” of ITAdOn could scarcely go on without him.
