Hakimullah was born as Jamshed Mehsud in the region of Kotkai near the town of Jandola in South Waziristan in 1979. He was educated in a small village madrassa in Hangu District. Baitullah Mehsud also attended the same school but eventually dropped out.

On 22 August 2009, Hakimullah Mehsud was appointed unanimously as the new leader of the Tehrik-e-Taliban by a 42-member shura (council).
