“I have known Amir for over 7 years in several professional capacities. First, he was hired as CTO of an organization of which I was on the board. Later, when my company acquired his organization, Amir was THE key executive we wanted to be assured that we secured.  He showed tremendous flexibility during this transition and the years that followed. He worked his way up to being the highest ranking technologist at the organization that acquired his team.
Amir is just as strong client-facing as he is in managing his internal teams for quality results.
He communicates clearly with other senior management and takes an ownership mentality to his work. He is a well-rounded senior technology executive focused on continuous improvement in himself and for his team. August 14, 2014

“Amir never failed to amaze me and won my respect and admiration many times over as his concern for meeting the needs of his clients and the organization always outweighed his personal interests. Working with Amir was a pleasure. Amir and his team designed and launched the training website on our Intranet. His team delivered solutions that worked and supported the HR teams launch of our first automated, on-line, performance management appraisal for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Not only was the launch successful, Amir accelerated the organization’s success as well as my success by ensuring his team provide me with on-line access for training classes and one-and-one coaching sessions. Amir and his team were an example to all other department leaders and managers at Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and he set an example for all ensuring his team were the first to deliver turn in their performance reviews and development plans. He ensured that members on his team received the training and development opportunities they needed to be successful in their jobs. One of my great joys in working with Amir was not just the wonderful IT work he did, but in reading the professionally written, outcome-based performance reviews that his team delivered … a testimony to a man who can see the big picture and understands the importance of detail. Thank you Amir.” October 6, 2008

“Amir made going to meetings fun. And, we all know that’s a talent lacking in business today. I knew when I walked into most meetings that time would stand still. However, if Amir attended the meeting, I always made it a point to sit near him as that often became the center of activity/interest. His creative insight and proactive point-of-view were most welcomed, as were his open and honest perspective. Constantly thinking of opportunity for others, Amir would make a great addition to any team!” September 2, 2008
