For the past seven years, I've had the privilege of collaborating with Jas Dihllon on a number of important Estalea initiatives. At Impact Radius (now Impact), we helped reposition the business from a promising early stage venture to a global leader among digital marketing platforms.
Jas recruited me to take over the Product Development leadership role for Ipsos's first large scale knowledge graph SaaS solution that he personally championed and shepherded through initial corporate funding, design-development-launch of the MVP, and commercial validation. I believe that Jas’s greatest leadership quality is that he leads by example. He is hands-on and frequently assists his team members to overcome business, product and technology challenges. Jas epitomizes the level of teamwork and leadership that is coveted by every organization. .

I have known Jas for over ten years and I brought him on board at Passenger to take the product, engineering and network operations functions and the company to the next level. In record time (less than 10 months) Jas scaled up the organization by recruiting and integrating exceptional product and engineering talent. Simultaneously Jas and his team greatly improved and launched the Passenger technology platform. Jas has also been critical in defining, enhancing and executing Passenger’s product and services strategy to make the company a leader in the rapidly evolving social technology industry through new innovation of the platform on iOS and Facebook. He has a unique ability to balance pragmatism with long term vision, resulting in practical, yet innovative solutions that directly address consumer and enterprise pain points.
