It was a pleasure working with Kamyar on our online marketing and content strategy project. During his multiyear engagement Kamyar Shah guided our board of directors through series of decisions and frame works to help us determine the most effective road map both in terms of cost and long term planning. He was professional, reliable and a team player.

Kamyar has the ability to unite both internal and external audiences and stakeholders during his time on our team. His ability to speak to all levels of expertise, which is required in a national association environment enabled him to move toward final goals while enabling all stakeholders to have full confidence in him and the oval organizational goals.

Kamyar leadership’s skills and expert knowledge in marketing and operations provides a unique combination that paved the way for great success. His methodology and technical knowledge enables him to be a hands-on leader that is not afraid to be involved in all aspect of project management ranging from most minute details to overall success measurements.

There is no doubt in my mind that Kamyar is willing and able to meet any challenge presented to him. His thirst for knowledge, his desire for personal and team success, his relentless and selfless desire to assist everyone combined with his hard work sets a great example for everyone in the organization.

I recommend Kamyar Shah for any leadership position both in Marketing and Operations without any reservations.

Kamyar gets it done. Full stop. I just don’t know any other way to describe him, the work he does or the ways he changes organizations. He can take something that is a chaos and make sense out of it, then distribute that sense down through the ranks to everyone else.

Mitchell Danzis
President at Storage Station

In my 20 plus years owning and managing real estate I’ve had the opportunity to hire individuals from different professions. Kamyar Shah’s performance has been among the best. Not only have I been impressed with his results but I’ve also been surprised in how many areas that he’s knowledgeable.

I first engaged Kamyar to overhaul our on-line presence. While his fees far exceeded what we had been spending, based on his explanation, I felt confident that he could provide not only the results I was seeking for SEO/SEM but his depth of knowledge and skill would actually give the lasting results I needed. I was not disappointed. Our rankings improved and have been maintained over a multi year period.Flowing from SEO/SEM project was the integration of Social Media into our efforts. Prior to this I had little knowledge of the importance of social media to on-line recognition. Whether it’s been the ever changing use of blogging, Facebook, Twitter etc. he always seems to know when it’s time to add or subtract to the equation. The final piece of this project was to help evaluate our non-elctronic media investments and adjust advertising dollars where appropriate.

In addition to the above, I had the need to hire Kamyar to aid in a HR revamp. As the complexity our our core business had grown, the need to find different employees emerged. Kamyar was most helping in researching proper sources of advertising, sorting through in excess of one thousand resumes, attending some targeted interviews and advising throughout the entire restaffing process. Once completed, I had Kamyar develop an internet based internal forum. It has been an invaluable tool and is now the primary source of intracompany communication.

Throughout the years of doing work for us Kamyar has been a major asset and benefit to our organization.
