TESTIMONIALS

Chris Erotokritou

Senior Ops Manager- Telefonica UK
Client of Ambarish

I had worked with Ambarish over the last few years on the Implementation and integration of the Incident Jeopardy Management Transition form the TEF UK to EGI in Bangalore. I find his ethos as exemplary, and his management traits spot on. The challenges faced at the time both in India and on his visits to the UK, found Ambarish's support to us in the NOC (previously NMC), most professional in engaging the correct and relevant areas, to ensure smooth transition was completed.
This came to light when we have faced blocking issues in regards to the correct level and depth of detail required on issues for implementation with areas we may not have had access to. He acted as the focal point between areas, to ensure a smooth transition. His communication skills were noted as exemplary, especially on the daily weekly calls held with him along with his emails as we progressed. . I find Ambarish possesses the quality of a highly motivated individual who can excel in whatever position he is placed in.

Ambarish was the Client

There are managers and then you have leaders. Ambarish is a blend of both. He is driven towards his team learning something new everyday day. his leadership style is very similar to of incredible bosses who care and want employees to benefit rather that make it just another job. Our project at Ericsson was a success due this. Godspeed Ambarish Anand

Ambarish is professional in his work ethics. It was a pleasure to work with him. Ambarish is easy going and easy to work with, punctual and has good timekeeping

Sumit Kumar

Security Manager-Experian, US

I'm lucky to have worked with Ambarish, a
Manager who understands what deliverables
are for both the company and people working with him. He makes a great example for a servant leader and strategic leadership. Ambarish perceives the company's and project's vision and embeds that in his style. He always has a plan and believes in combining different scopes of project and the employees share his vision and goal. He wants each person to grow professionally which everyone appreciates working for him. I identified my leadership skills and potential because Ambarish provides a platform for employees to succeed which the customers also realize and appreciate. I just absolutely love his leadership style and that's what you want an employee to think of his manager.

Ricardo Santos

I had the pleasure to work with Ambarish on his stay at Netcracker. He was very well committed with his activities and had a incredible learning curve what made him self-sufficient and a good and respected leader in a short period of time. Ambarish is a organized and customer-service oriented perfectionist, has no problem to work hard when necessary. Is always capable of adapting to new working environments. Very positive attitude towards work. Ambarish possesses a winning combination of solid tech skills and business sense, I learned a great deal from him. He is a a credible person and I will always hold him in the highest esteem.
