About Amir Sabirovic

Technology combined with strategy and communication is the capability that enables me to sort through the clutter and find the best route. I aim to see patterns where others see complexity and then play out these in alternative scenarios, always asking “what if this happened and what if that happened?” is what empowers me to see around the next corner and accurately evaluate the potential obstacles.
