Recommendations


Peter van Huyssteen

Senior Director Professional Services

Peter managed Sajeed directly

I had the privilege of having Sajeed on my team of Project Mangers for six years…and what a privilege it was. Sajeed is that person you can assign the toughest of projects and see him deliver success, time after time. His ability to focus on what is important is exceptional. He is results-driven and has an amazing ability to motivate his team. He is equally focused on customer success but strikes a unique balance between fairness and contractual obligations for all stakeholders.  His predictability in delivery and revenue forecast planning provides management with great comfort and stability. He never brings you problems without potential solutions. Sajeed is one of the most emotionally mature people I have ever worked with.   If I have the opportunity to work with Sajeed again, I will have no hesitation - he is a huge asset to any business and manager.

Melvin Lasrado

Senior Information Technology Manager at Al Tayer Motors 

Melvin was a client of Sajeed's.

I have had the opportunity to work with Sajeed on several projects since 2012 and the latest one that I worked with him on was the best since 2018. He worked in the capacity of project manager for a yearlong Drive DMS upgrade project and, unlike any other project managers, Sajeed is a kind of manager who will show what excellent project management should be. He has shown a significant increase in effectiveness compared to other project managers. His unique ability to organize the working process and let consultants demonstrate their professional skills to a full extent, made Sajeed our favorite. A combination of humor and empathy helps to lift the spirit in stressful situations. I highly recommend working with a professional like Mohamed Sajeed. 

Paul Wilson

Product Marketing Manager

Paul worked with Sajeed in different groups.

I had the pleasure of working with Sajeed at both CDK and Keyloop. I was particularly impressed by Sajeed’s ability to handle even the toughest clients effortlessly. That skill takes years to develop among Project Management professionals. But it came perfectly natural to him. No matter the scope and complexity of the project, Sajeed can be relied on to deliver. 

Rob Murry

Ex-Vice President Operations at CDK Global

Rob was senior to Sajeed but didn't manage directly

Sajeed brings a wealth of project management knowledge, successfully delivering highly complex SaaS business solutions. This coupled with strong business and industry knowledge helps him communicate at all levels and ensures projects are delivered to a high standard.
