Reji was hired to establish a solutions engineering team globally. Reji grew his team in from 7 people to over 200. He managed a global team, with group of people in the US and Europe as well as India, and his lifestyle became that of a global executive. His approach contributed to Antenna's business quadrupling in size during Reji’s tenure. Antenna bought 4 competitors over the last four years, which meant additional complexity. Reji integrated teams from different companies, and his team continued to support a variety of legacy platforms as well as Antenna's evolving platform, which integrated acquired capabilities with Antenna's own.

Reji and I worked together at Lucent Technologies/Bell Labs in the late 90's. Even in this early part of his professional career, Reji demonstrated the characteristics and potentials of a successful engineering leader. Not only Reji did deliver excellent technical design and development for the projects, which he was involved in, he also motivated his teammates to work as a team. He was leading his project team by his technical excellence, architecture leadership, and sincereness to help. I am not surprised by what he has achieved today. It was truly a pleasant experience working with Reji.

I had the pleasure of working with Reji, when he was at Antenna, on the development of a mobile application for Cushman & Wakefield. This was our first mobile app and Reji's leadership and expertise were key contributors to our success. He is creative in finding solutions, and his calm demeanor and responsiveness make him an excellent development partner.
