Ubaid is a sharp, analytical thinker. He's full of great ideas, and knows how to execute quickly against them. He's constantly thinking of w ... ays to overcome obstacles, and is impressively resourceful at doing so. He has very strong communication skills. All combined, he can be very persuasive. He's a true technologist -- he's built large scale complex systems -- and gets the business side as well, as is evidenced by the multi-million dollar P&L he managed at ETrade. Best of all, he's incredibly loyal and faithful. I've personally witnessed him "fall on the sword" in order to protect those who work for/with him.
