Vouch for them.

Sandesh Mutha
We worked together  •  Principal, Cornerstone Technology Partners and Principal, SSP Data. University of California, Berkeley grad.

Stephan Wiederkehr
We worked together  •  Principal, Residential Mortgage Lending, Pacific Mortgage Corporation and President, Commercial Mortgage Lending, Finance West.
Arun has a rare combination of being both an analytical person and a very good communicator. He is open minded, gracious, and intelligent. I ... think he is interested in subjects both deep and as they relate to the rest of the world. A key ingredient to be a successful entrepreneur.
Marty Landa
We worked together  •  Owner, MJL Microsystems. Previously Service Department Manager, Royce Photographic.
He is committed to excellence and works hard to achieve it.
Joe Stermer
We worked together  •  Journeyman, UA Local # 469. Arizona State grad.
Arun IS a great entrepreneur. In the early 1990s he began building and using PCs in the back of a retail store he owned and operated. Eventu ... ally, he moved the PC operation into a free standing store where he was able to deliver for a PC to the consumer for under $1000. At the time, this was the break point which fueled the home PC revolution. Later, he turned MicroSimplex-the name he gave his PC Business- into a Total Solution provider for business IT requirements. During those years of MicroSimplex, I was there to offer Arun any assistance he needed. Now that he has sold MX and gone on to Consilting work in California, our friendship between ourselves and our families has remained strong while I know less about what he does on a day to day basis. As I note, Arun is an entrepreneur and by seeking your company, certain he wants to remain on the Ge not only to learn but to share his knowledge and experience as well.

The late Steve Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple once said, "I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs ... from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance." If I could choose one word that best describes Arun, it would be perseverance. I have known him for many years, and, in all that time he has never quit striving to move forward. I think he would make a valuable asset to any partnership.
