Here are just a few snippets from Amit’s nomination that shows why he has been selected as our winner this year:

Additionally, as an intellectually curious person, I love understanding prospects, customers, and the wider market, working collaboratively with others to build solutions and messaging to meet these pain points.” Amit Alagh
“Your deep knowledge of the subject as well as the understanding of what the users need (even if they did not know that themselves at the time) really took us to the next level of servicing our customers.” Linda Damen, Kluwer Law International
“Unbelievably talented.” Mike Smith, Wolters KluwerLegal & Regulatory US
“Amit is a true joy to work and partner with. He is a consummate professional with incredible knowledge of his product and his customer market. His efforts to understand and align his products with the sales process are incredibly thorough, ensuring that our sales organization has the resources and guidance they need to go to market successfully. His relationship-building is stellar, and as a result he is able to effortlessly partner with stakeholders across the business.” Emily McCall, Wolters Kluwer
