In ports and harbours all around the world, the most experienced ships’ captains make room at the helm for a special consultant known as a pilot. These special consultants are navigational experts with years of experience before they are allowed to call themselves a pilot. They have real-world knowledge of the issues the ship faces, such as its depth, currents, and hazards, as well as being experts in handling ships of all sizes.

Vivek is that pilot you need for your business. No matter how successful the enterprise has been doing so far, there is always the possibility of doing things better and avoiding the hidden rocks and hazards that aren’t on the old charts you have at hand.

His decades of real-world experience leading teams around the globe give Vivek the experience to show you what has worked for others. His methodologies and tools show you how, with a little help navigating, that your enterprise could be in Blue Ocean waters quicker and more effectively. He combines the best of real-world practical knowledge with the best of management theory to give you completely new insights into how to better chart a course for growth and success.

I have known Vivek for some time now, and I have worked with him in non-profit and commercial enterprises. I have recommended him already to others already, with great praise coming back. Vivek's style of coaching makes a real difference and it opens up a whole new way of thinking about business problems. Coupled with your industry expertise and his expert pilotage, your enterprise will circumnavigate the shoals and unseen hazards that could sink your company without his help.

Having had the opportunity to work with Vivek for over 10 years, I have always found him to be a true professional.

During his time as VP, America Sales, Vivek demonstrated strong interpersonal and communication skills. His continuous commitment to strive for better customer satisfaction served as motivation to his entire team. The result was year-over-year growth in sales in the Americas region.

Vivek has also served as Managing Director of Maximizer’s overseas subsidiary company and then President of Maximizer. In both these roles he demonstrated great leadership skills by making difficult decisions in challenging times and situations. All the while, he has done so by considering the impact on all his stakeholders. The result has been earning the respect from his customers, staff and peers.

Vivek is a great leader, he is clear in communicating the organisations strategies, objectives and ultimately delivering on them. He proved to always be on hand to assist in any sales opportunity showing true support from the top of the organisation to help get the deal won. I would certainly work for Vivek again.

Over the past 21 years I've worked with Vivek three times, at two great software companies (one large and one mid-sized). In that time Vivek has been highly effective in directing, leading, and developing personnel and teams to much success in very complex, challenging, and highly competitive markets. He has routinely executed winning strategies and always maintained focus on positive bottom line impact. Vivek's leadership has led to many of the most loyal, long term, raving fan customers, with some of the highest retention rates in the software industry that I am aware of. I proudly recommend Vivek to any organization looking for professional advice to take their business to the next level and to avoid the costly pitfalls along the way.

It was valuable to have Vivek guide us through a flexible framework that created buy-in and alignment between investors, board members, and the executive team. We walked away with a clear understanding of our priorities, actions, and accountabilities. As a CEO, it was much more rewarding to feel comfortable being a participant in this session rather than also playing the facilitator role as in previous years.

We brought Vivek on to facilitate a strategy session for BarrelWise in December of 2020. His structured approach and years of experience were instrumental in the development of a three-year strategic plan. Vivek was professional, organized, and a pleasure to work with. I would happily recommend his services

Vivek used to be one my direct reports as the Director of the Western Europe region at FrontRange Solutions (formerly Goldmine Software). He achieved a tremendous job in that position, showing an excellent combination of sales experience, management skills and seriousness in reporting. Our sales goals have been regularly achieved or exceeded in Western Europe, and Vivek's team buidling capabilities did the rest. I would certainly hire Vivek again in an EMEA top management position.

Vivek is one of the most proactive man I worked with. He has a special knack in seeking for results. He is reliable and competent. He has the talent of getting out the best from his collaborators. And list but not the last he also has a very well hidden sense of humor.

I have had the good fortune to work with Vivek twice, originally as peers for 4 years and most recently when he asked me to return to Maximizer to assist him getting the company back on track. In the intervening period he had demonstrated his ability to step beyond ‘sales’ during a very successful spell running Maximizer’s EMEA region. Vivek is passionate about what he does, works his ass off, and is constantly trying to figure out new avenues for revenue. He also knows his way around financials. In addition, he has always impressed me with his willingness to consider and then accept without ego, reasoning or opinions that differ from those he started with. Lastly, his family is the core of his life, which I suspect is the foundation for Vivek’s integrity and considerable compassion for others.
