Sameer Adil’s extremely professional nature has create a positive and motivating influence in the team. Yes, he was ready to stand for the challenges and his superb communication skills brought a lot of business to the organization 

His striving nature to excel earned him accolades while the organization continue to gain every quarter.
Sameer is known for his optimism, zeal, enthusiasm and importantly, he is mentally prepared to take challenging roles to continuously excel.
His exemplary education certainly comes handy for our organization in learning things quickly with minimum mistakes.

I couldn’t have easily let him go, but he has to shift from Lucknow, on personal grounds, taking care of his family members in Indore (his home city) . I know him as a gem (no exaggeration) and he will equally prove to be an asset for your company too.
