During my time in Petronas Exploration & Production (2013 - 2016), I have received services by Omid to identify suitable candidates for key roles in the area of E&P Project Management. Omid has always acted with the highest level of integrity in his role. He was on top to identify possible candidates and has followed through to achieve the best result for all parties concerned. He has been following up on his commitments, which demonstrated that he is a reliable person to work with. During periods of difficult negotiations in the Asian context, he showed that he has the individual strength to master challenging situations. Without any doubts, I am comfortable to recommend his services to other customers.
