Husni Salka
We worked together  •  Enterprise Architect - Advanced Migration Services, Cisco Systems. Previously Technology Manager / Enterprise Architect, PwC.
Syed is an intelligent person who is always curious and studios about many subjects. He is intellectual that knows how to articulate his tho ... ughts in a logical and concise order. He is focused, ambitious and thinks outside the box in solving problems as well as in suggesting new ideas. He is personal and great to work with.
Frank Lu
We worked together  •  Middleware Strategist, IBM. Previously Graduate Teaching Assistant, Cornell University. Cornell grad.
I've worked with Syed before, and he has always been a valuable member on any time. His biggest asset is his innate ability in getting peopl ... e work together towards a common. Syed is a extremely good communicator and a true team player (Not bluffing here)
Anwar Haneef
We worked together  •  Partner, Global Financial Services Transformations, IBM Watson Group. University of Massachusetts Amherst grad.
I've worked in a capacity where a lot of people wanted to work with me, due to the nature of my role. Syed was able to wade through the curr ... ents and get to me and my team through sheer determination and perseverance. Despite the challenges of his own role, Syed always looked for new opportunities to try new and innovative ideas and constantly looked for ways to bring something to market and our clients. His persistence and patients are powerful assets.
Ashwin Kini
We worked together  •  Senior Security Consultant, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. Previously Systems Engineer, NTT Data Corporation.
Syed is an exceptional leader. I’ve worked with him in the past, and there are several qualities that I most appreciate about him. First h ... e’s very smart, and he's always getting smarter, because he asks great questions. Be prepared, he’ll ask you questions that you haven’t thought of yet:) But the good news is you’ll get smarter as a result too. Second, he’s blessed with an unbelievable drive and energy level. You know how there are some people who just crank at higher levels than most normal people?! Syed is that way, and as a result people around him raise their games and deliver higher levels of performance. Third, Syed is a great communicator. He can run a weekly operational meeting with his team that is satisfyingly productive, and then ten minutes later he can stand in front of a room of a hundred and inspire them with the big picture. And fourth, and this is the best part, Syed is seriously motivated to have a positive impact on the work he does which makes him a great entrepreneur material. I highly recommend Syed!

We worked together  •  Director, PwC. Previously Associate, Arthur Andersen Business Consulting.
Syed has shared with me a number of great ideas in mobile payments. He is very passionate about his interests and has the potential to turn ... one or more of them into big opportunities.
