Most Valuable Performer @ Zycat 2014

Super excited to announce that I was awarded MVP at Zycus’ annual awards function – Zycat 2014 – and here’s is what they had to say:

Apart from helping Sales team in winning deals, also plays key role in defining the product roadmap & mentoring the downstream PMG team.
