Ashwin is an excellent person you can count on. He has deep expertise in what he does and honest. I will continue to work with Ashwin anytime and will recommend him to anyone looking for his expertise.
Ashwin played a key role in building the pre-sales practice at Photon and set a lot of processes around it to ensure that turn around times and accuracy of responses was to the tee. He was also a good manager and ensured his team was as successful and productive as he was.
He exhibited a lot of passion in product management when Photon decided to market a virtual collaboration tool for the first time and came up with some key statistics and trends from the e-learning industry apart from a strategy to effectively market it which resulted in that campaign being a great success!
His passion and rigor towards his work has been highly commendable and appreciated at all times. It has always been a pleasure working with him and I highly recommend him on all counts..
Ashwin is a very good orator and writer on any given topic and especially on any current software or market trends. A person with very in depth knowledge to debate to any extent, on topics around the web. It was my good fortune to work with Ashwin during the starting stages and we won many good deals working together. Ashwin used his exemplary people skills to build the Pre-sales team of Photon and went on to lead a team that released a virtual collaboration suite that won rave reviews in 2004. Ashwin also consulted social media and eLearning entrepreneurs early on and helped build an eLearning practice.
Ashwin has been a very committed and result oriented professional in his role as the Account Manager handling Tier-1 automotive customers. Has a strong understanding of the industry and brings a strong consultative approach to addressing customers requirements. His intense client focus, winning solution mindset and ability to integrate with multiple teams working across functions and geographies is unique.
Ashwin is a manager par excellence, plain and simple. He is a great colleague and an outstanding boss. A sharp business acumen mixed with great people management skills makes Ashwin an example most people would use as a benchmark in excellence. He has been a role model for many colleagues like me, and enjoys coaching and mentoring his team and colleagues. His passion for his field shows and he is always in sync with what's in and what’s out in the world of software technology.
One of Ashwin’s most amazing qualities was his patience and calm demeanour under the most intense of high-pressure situations. His cool and collected manner of handling people and situations was and still is spoken very highly about at Photon. He was primarily instrumental in inculcating the ‘going-the-extra-yard’ habit in all of us who reported to him. Given the opportunity, I would definitely be keen on working with Ashwin again in the future.
Ashwin, an aspiring entrepreneur, who treats every single opportunity seriously, tries to transform into a leap. A highly disciplined, yet very smart individual. Professional and pragmatic. He used to meticulously plan for each opportunity, pool resources, orchestrate things well towards closure.
Ashwin is resourceful, has deep perception of offerings, quickly zeroes-in on ultimate business requirements and knows how to turn this a win. A well rounded professional with high energy levels. Amazing customer facing and people skills. He knows the magic of being / becoming “critical resource” in any important mission.
Anyone who has extraordinary goals (targets), who needs superhero in their mission, you cannot afford to miss Ashwin!
