Paul Fasone

I had the opportunity to work with Mak while he was leading worldwide initiatives for Roche which included defining global data warehousing and business intelligence strategy and architecting an integration competency center (ICC). Mak demonstrated focus, clarity of vision and clear understanding of the roles & responsibilities. He added value to our discussions by carefully listening and incorporating the North America commercial operations stakeholder requirements into the global vision.

His ability to quickly assimilate information and compile it into actionable information was very effective. Equally impressive was his skill in building consensus among global constituents with divergent priorities.

Mak fostered collaboration between global informatics architecture group and commercial operations IM groups. Mak’s management style is characterized by having a transparency in decision-making, supporting open communication, building trustworthy relationships and delivering superior results. I highly recommend Mak’s services.
