Memberships & Involvements
It’s a people’s company, and Sankey being a great leader has been able to motivate everybody to work at the pace they have been working. I find the commitment, wherever things you can attribute to good quality of a company, they have got loyalty, they have got dedication, integrity levels are high, commitment is there. wherever they have worked, whichever developer they have worked with, they have been able to make those developers progress much faster then what the developers are trying to do themselves.

Ever since Synergy has been part of our life, having built Medanta, I think there is a lot of synergy with Synergy that we have found in our ability to accomplish projects, which are one of the biggest in this country. the whole team has been energetic, diligent and always on the ball and have delivered when they promised that they would.
