At Orchestra, I take pride in our ability to innovate our product, processes, and culture, to create the most effective team possible. The impact of our culture of constant improvement never ceases to amaze me, and it keeps me fired up, day in and day out.
My vision for Orchestra is to grow this company into the largest global provider of industry vertical software for small and midsize enterprises.
I’ve learned how to enter an industry, gain knowledge, and go-to-market with a solution that solves the real problems facing an industry. I believe there is a paradigm shift happening with software right now, moving to Cloud, Mobile, and Big Data, so I have positioned Orchestra to leverage this shift.
As Orchestra’s VP of Operations, Reshad oversees the creation and roll-out of our solutions, directs the sales team, develops our sales execution strategies, overseas implementation schedules and manages day-to-day operations. If you contact Orchestra to ask about doing business with us, you’re likely to speak to Reshad and find out that he’s interested in your business and how we can help. He has an uncanny ability to determine what really matters to people and where Orchestra’s solutions and services fit in.
