I have worked with Vishal and various assignments and found him to be consistently pleasant , tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile. Besides being a joy to work with Vishal is able to understand and simulate complex models and come out with his opinion and creative ideas. Vishal constantly worked with multitude of assigment based supervisors and showed great maturity in managing his time to balance the various priorities. Apart from his good analytical work Vishal was a key person in organising team events and would constantly add life to various corporate programmes. I highly recommend Vishal for employment, he is a team player and very valuable in any organisation.

Volunteering for Purdue's "Boiler Gold Rush" week-long freshman orientation program requires a dynamic blend of personality traits: confidence, leadership, speaking ability, energy, and most importantly, respect and compassion for others. Vishal stood out among more than 400 such volunteers, due in large part to his uniquely positive spirit. He inspired both his peers and incoming freshmen to make the most of their Purdue experience--making an immeasurable impact on the campus as a whole.

Vishal possesses excellent communication skills and he effectively uses this to the benefit of the organization, his team and thereby himself. He is a focussed and career oriented individual who I am positive will soar to great heights. His affable personality coupled with great client interaction skills will surely benefit any organization. I wish him all the best for a successful future

Vishal has worked on various assignments with me at Tishman Speyer. He is a great team player and likes to take up new assignments and challenges. Vishal has ability to keep smiling in the midst of all the pressure and multiple assignments and that proves to be a great strength to the team that he belongs to. He demonstrated a great ability to understand the complex business models and work alongside the senior management team analyzing various business scenarios. I strongly recommend Vishal as a must have resource in any team.
