His direct no-nonsense approach, coupled with his unique skillset and technical depth, is a tremendous asset to Verizon.

    - Greg W (Manager)
  • Tarek is one of the most creative people that I worked with in my career and that is not necessarily his forte. His ability to mold technology in order to build solutions that solve real world problems is uncanny. A unique combination of dedication, passion and intelligence makes him a rare commodity in the generic technology-buzz ridden leaders market that we find ourselves dwelling in these days. He is rare gem that I have seen grow from raw to seasoned in record time and he will always have a place in my organization, not that I think he will ever need to look for a job.

  • Tarek was my manager from 2011 to 2013 when I worked at Verizon. He is one of those rare managers who also naturally serves as an inspiring mentor for the whole team, and exhibits strong interpersonal skills and a unique capacity for empathy. These qualities most notably translate in his ability to motivate a team to care about its project and be invested in the project’s success. Tarek is the go-to person for conflict resolution and problem solving; he steps in to diffuse tension and induce compromising. Though he’s never one to draw attention to himself, Tarek´s positive attitude and the respect others feel toward him are palpable. I heartily recommend Tarek and would be only too happy to work with him again.

    - Salim S (COO)
  • I worked under Tarek this summer, as a Data-Science intern. Throughout my summer, he never failed to amaze me. His passion for technology and innovation is unparalleled by any one in the work-force. He is always informed on the latest technologies, and constantly broadening his knowledge base. He dedicates everything to work, then goes home takes care of his family, and is still publishing papers and learning new software. Personally, he served as my boss and a mentor throughout my internship, and was definitely the reason my experience was as valuable as it was. Tarek pushed for innovative projects for interns, allowing for us to see the potential of technology at a relatively traditional company like TR. He gave us a chance to make an impact on the company, and provided me exposure to many talented individuals in the company. He gave me advice, challenged me, and always saw the next step, even when I didn’t. Tarek also fosters a great team environment; everyone is excited to see him, and he genuinely cares about what is going in his employee’s lifes. Tarek is a visionary, an enthusiast; he has suggested technological innovations at TR five years before they were implemented. In my personal opinion, a man with his intelligence, enthusiasm, and drive should be leading the technology division of an entire company.

    - Samir N (Data Scientist)
  • It was a pleasure to work with Tarek on our IT leadership team. He has a passion for technology and for creating a culture of innovation. He’s a leader who inspires teams to envision possibilities, overcome complexity, and deliver on objectives.
