Ash was the first person I met on a project for BMC Software, and from the very first seconds I was inspired by his energy and passion, ability to light a fire in a souls of team members and encourage them to work towards the common goal. I really enjoyed working with Ash and one can hardly find such a bright, synergic and creative thinking person.
