As the impresario of the Conspectus specifiers, Basiru brings comprehensive project management experience with a focus on delivering high-quality projects on budget and on time. His knowledge, support and ability to partner with architects, engineering firms, general contractors, sub-contractors and sales teams in all aspect of the construction management process align well with Conceptus’ approach of “creating value and mitigating risk for all”. Basiru had a long tenure with Avaya and one of his career highlight was when he successfully ran the Global Project Management Office in support of General Electric (NBC Universal) and obtaining over 80% net promoter score (NPS), triggering General Electric to rescind its probationary (no new purchases) status on Avaya.
Basiru approaches his professional life as he does golfing:
"Keep a steady hand - not too high, not too low. This allows me to stay focus and ultimately successful when taking on challenges."
The encouragement and support of his family in his personal life has allowed him to gain success and growth in his professional life. Project management and life is all about balance and adventure.
"One day I hope to visit at least one country in every continent. What's left on the list: Australia, Asia, South America and maybe Antarctica?"
