Nothing can express the amount of gratitude we owe you for being supportive and constantly motivating us to perform throughout this wonderful journey we have had together as a team. One of the characteristics which we have always admired the most in you is your ability to lead from the front and at the same time to get team members to follow your vision without enforcing. There are countless positive attributes which we have learnt working with you…… strong decision making, effective communication, people centric approach and infinite patience just a few of them to name. We are fortunate to have had the privilege to work with you.
