I worked with Jamal at a manufacturing organization where Jamal is a Trusted Advisor to the CEO. Jamal works to develop long-term trusted relationships with his C-level clients. Taking a big picture view of the customers and vendors he seeks to identify, influence and build practical, innovative win-win solutions and relationships for all parties. It is a pleasure working with Jamal, he promotes innovation and efficiency while striving to mitigate risk. Therefore, I feel confident recommending him as a C-Level advisor, and look forward to continue working with him on new and exciting initiatives.

Jamal did an excellent job when I engaged him and his team through Accenture to help us at Nextel International with our IT alignment business strategy. He led the Accenture team composed of US, Canadian and Argentinean consultants, and ran us through an outstanding process of application portfolio analysis, business needs assessment, creation of business case, and a roadmap to align our IT with the business. He used several tools, templates and processes with insight to produce a successful outcome that landed $40M in investment and executed the strategy. I highly recommend Jamal for any IT and Business Strategy work.
