"Elham was exceptional in every way. Her project management is a 10 out of 10. Her communication is the same. She managed a highly complex project and made it look easy and it was not. She always had a positive attitude and kept her cool even during highly stressful periods in the project. Her team loved her. The project was on-time, on-budget and very profitable!"
