Case Studies

Nikhil is bright, hard-working, and generous of spirit and friendship. He possesses a great talent for technical problem-solving. He makes a great founder in his speed, breadth, aptitude, and demeanor. I learned much from my time with him.

Shane Schieffer

CEO, FitTrip

Nikhil is singlehandedly the best “first three employees” a startup could hire. He has a good eye for identifying solvable challenges in a given market. These skills are backed by a strong sense of teamwork, and a can-do attitude, all of which makes Nikhil a fantastic asset for any entrepreneurially focused technology team.

David Zwiefler

Lead Content Marketer, D+H

Nikhil has a 100% can-do attitude - and the skills, talents, and abilities to back it up. Want it done on time and professionally, with the best teamwork? Nikhil's your man.

Stephen Kuhn


I would consider Nikhil's top strengths to be creativity, technical aptitude and a strong desire to learn. Throughout his time here at Verisign Nikhil's contributions to our product base was far beyond simple improvements and projects. His suggestions to develop ECC certificates to replace their RSA counterparts showed his ability to think outside the box and to understand complex technologies and ideas.

Kandasamy Muniasamy

Director, VeriSign

What impresses me most about Nikhil are his leadership qualities and his growth over the last few years. Given the global presence of Barclays’ facilities and the frantic pace of my position, Nikhil spent the better part of his tenure at Barclays with no direct supervision. To think he was able to accomplish so much and make such a positive difference speaks volumes to his character and resolve.

Managing Director, Barclays Global Investors
