"Bassam is a very good communicator. Once work is advised he immediately responds setting out what is to be provided and the time frames. He always goes the extra distance to make sure we have what we want when we need it. Bassam's contract and industry knowledge makes him a good fit to our company. Bassam always digs deep to make sure that we are considering all factors and risks, while often suggesting options for a solution. He gets involved and will ask for information or clarification as required so that he can give the best advice. In summary Bassam is like an extension to the team that we can rely on and have confidence in."
