As an administrator, Hassan is the managing director of Beximco Pharmaceutical Ltd, one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in Bangladesh.
Son of the country's president Zillur Rahman, Hassan is himself a member of parliament after having won his seat from Kishoreganj in the 2009 elections for Awami League.
