The daughter of a former CEO of Australia Post has revealed the reality of having a high-powered executive as a dad – the job has big demands on his time.
Ahmed Fahour’s daughter Yasmin shared a series of text messages from her father in a viral post to TikTok this week.
Her video – titled ‘what’s it like to have a CEO as a dad’ – featured several messages from her father, where he says he will call her back, adding that he was working on matters she was asking him about.
Mr Fahour was once Australia’s highest paid public servant while heading up the postal organization – earning a $4.4million salary and a $1.2million bonus.

One message Ms Fahour wrote said: ‘Sorry can’t talk I can’t talk as I am on another call but I will call you back later.’
Another said: ‘Sorry I can’t talk at the moment but please text me your message.’
Other messages include: ‘Speak later I’m working on it’ and ‘talk later’.
Many TikTok users took to the post to sympathize with Ms Fahour and her father’s situation – who is seen smiling lovingly at his daughter in one picture.
The clip has more than 60,000 views – with several comments noting her busy father was working hard to be available to her.

During his time as the head of Australia Post, Mr Fahour defended his pay-packet, saying running the organization was a ‘little bit more complex than running a fish and chip shop’.
Mr Fahour resigned as CEO of Australia Post in 2017 after a seven year tenure with the company.
He insisted the intense public scrutiny over his generous pay package was not the reason behind his resignation.
After his stint with Australia Post Mr Fahour setup a yoga business with his ex-wife Dionnie – with whom he shares four children.

The couple registered the trademark Astra Yoga with the help of law firm Arnold Bloch Leibler, The Australian reported in 2018.
The publication reported Mr Fahour would be acting in a support role.
In July 2021, Mr Fahour sold his luxury mansion in Melbourne’s inner-city, for $40.5 million.
The property features four buildings including a five-bedroom main house, a separate guest house that sleeps three, a two-bedroom cottage and a six-car garage.
Mr Fahour is now the managing director of Latitude Financial Services and remarried his new partner Hannah Holmes in a small ceremony last year.
