AS1788 Seattle to Los Angeles


Thought the Eskimo Smile would be bringing me down but found out it was Red Sir Richard Branson ๐Ÿ™‚

At the end this happen to be the first time of flying in Virgin America almost after 10 years since last time – believe I took Virgin once when it launched in Seattle, and also believe this might be highly likely the last red flight I might take as they are about to be rebranded as Alaska.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Gonna miss the great entertainment system, fun & hipster safety video performance, and purple/blue neon lights in cabin.

One more thing went away with 2011: AT&T and T-Mobile merger

Yes it is official…

This one taught me a lot on developing perspectives on business as well as understanding importance on leadership in crisis mode..


Finally another Seattle thing going away…

… Speechless Sunday afternoon started with strange e-mail from corporate communication starting with “Important Message…”


Every company I have worked has engaged in any kind of transaction or key changes in shareholder structure…
Accenture: went IPO in 2001
PwC: Sold consulting business in 2002 to IBM
Atrica: The company I did my MBA internship, and acquired by Nokia-Siemens Networks after I finished working at there..
and finally T-Mobile…
Who wants their company either IPOed or sold? Hire me…. ๐Ÿ™‚
Expecting fun summer times at Seattle here…(Hope this is not the last summer in Seattle!)

Bye PWC…..


ย Right after rejoining PwC now it is IBM – is this good or bad? ๐Ÿ™‚
