CEO & Founder
Shafat founded BQE in 1995 to simplify the lives of millions of service professionals. An engineer by trade, he was acutely aware of the pain professional service firms endure when it comes to billing, accounting, time tracking, and project management. He created the original BillQuick in his garage. Two decades later, as he oversees a global enterprise, Shafat has never forgotten his roots and BQE remains at the vanguard of customer-driven innovation. He holds a master’s in structural engineering from the University of New York and a bachelor’s degree from the National Institute of India (NIT). When he’s not working on a new invention, he enjoys flying planes and traveling. So far, he’s visited 51 countries and plans to visit at least 50 more.
