  1. Vineet is a CEO of a rare kind where he has successfully and beautifully balanced between strategy and execution, fast paced growth and financial responsibility, customers and employees, investors and the PR, work culture and employee productivity all along while creating a very differentiated product in a high growth industry with a team of extremely bright, hard-working, colleagues who are passionate about what they do but are also humble and collaborative. He takes respect and friendliness into consideration in everything that we do. He is very reflective of the culture – very smart, holds a high bar, but clearly cares a lot about the people who work for the company. I am sure in a couple of years Vineet will define what a CEO ought to be, all the way from a startup a company with > $1 billion in valuation.

  2. Vineet is the most transparent and sincere leader I have ever met in the tech industry. He is raw and real, making him a very strong personality to lead our company. Vineet’s true shining characteristic is his ability to metaphorically “run his own race.” While many companies hop on trends, like raising exorbitant amounts of money and creating growth at any cost, Vineet steers us in a unique direction. Vineet exercises fiscal prudence and builds us with strong financial principles. He, as well as the rest of the leadership team, are committed to building a value-based business that will be around for the long haul. With over 15,000 customers, Vineet has been a true testament to the benefits of exercising passion, commitment, and patience.

  3. Vineet is one of the most knowledgable leaders in the SaaS/Cloud space. He has 20+ years of experience building businesses and has now taken Egnyte from inception to nearly $100M revenue. He is also fundamentalist in the sense that he builds businesses that are capitally efficient. The Egnyte business is unique because they have only raised $62.5M in 10 years and have reached cashflow positivity AND profitability – unlike a majority of SaaS-based companies that have come before.

  4. Vineet is always positive and finds the best in all situations. He is energetic and concerned with making sure that while the company grows in offerings and size that employee satisfaction doesn’t fall by the wayside. He is not afraid to speak his mind either, but is always open to others’ perspectives and feedback.
