Samir is a very talented person, always keen in analyzing things from different perspectives, developing innovative solutions for pressing p ... roblems. He is not afraid of expressing his opinions, both to peers and high-level contacts, always in a kind and inclusive way. He does not look for the "easy way" to do something, but rather for innovative solutions, willing to take calculated risks in order to succeed where others have failed.
