His insight and attention to detail is second to none.

deliver services of the highest quality
Senior Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary at Promethean Energy Corporation
I Have known Sia Dehghan since 1998 when TOTAL initially outsourced its IT functions to Omnes . During the six year period I have served as TOTAL’s Vice President of Human Resources, Communication and General Counsel during a significant divestment and two subsequent corporate mergers. All of these corporate activities involved very significant IT issues both technically and from personnel standpoint.
Despite the obvious transitions difficulties, from my perspective, Sia Dehghan excelled in the manner in which he serviced his clients and responded to our needs in timely and efficient manner. He demonstrated a remarkable ability to retain his cool composure under great pressure and my view, to deliver services of the highest quality.
It is with utmost sincerity and high regard that I highly recommend Sia Dehghan to you for whatever IT services you might need
great work can be accomplished in a short time
Production Engineer TOTAL E&P USA (2004)
Of the people and contractors at Total E&P USA that I have worked with, one whom I am very appreciative of is Sia Dehghan of Schlumberger. Whenever a problem involving IT has came up, he has been the best person to call to make sure things were fixed and fixed correctly. Of the projects he has worked on for me, the Canyon Express (CE) project was probably where I saw his most impressive work. Sia organized the following in just a couple of months:
-The transfer of over 2500 data points from the platform to the Total office to a website every 10 minutes to be viewed by CE partners. Several new programs had to be written to properly transfer this data.
-The transfer of daily and monthly *.xls files for view and use by CE partners. Several new programs were written for this operation as well.
-The setup and support of the production allocation (TOW) and data transfer system on the platform. This included all necessary software, hardware, and security.
-trouble shooting of the dataview website to increase speed and usability.
Without his help and quick action in this project, Total would have fallen far behind in meeting partner needs. There have been several other smaller projects I have worked on with Sia, where he moved quickly to obtain a solution and then organize and direct the right people to implement. His knowledge of the needs for data transfer, combined with his appreciation for working quickly have been invaluable for the department that I work in. Give Sia Dehghan the right tools and great work can be accomplished in a short time. I can easily say that any IT group or company is blessed to have a man with Sia’s talents and recommend his services whole heatedly
Business Development Manager LVBS at ABB Low Voltage Products & Systems:
I have a very special place in my heart for Sia. There is a very small and select list of men that I would personally consider mentors and he is one of them. My nickname for him is Yoda because he is as wise but not as green as that fictional creature. He is a problem solver among problem solvers. I consider myself an outside the box thinker and he teaches me a thing or two every time we talk. He is a leader and would be an asset to any company. The harder the problem you have the better the choice he is. I hear he is working on a great book and I am looking forward to reading it
truly compassionate businessperson
Chief VoIP/UC Security Architect:
Sia has a tenacious, detailed-driven attitude to serve. He maintains a professional focus, and is customer centric in his services he offers. The longest lingering impression is his audacity to get the job done right the first time, meanwhile maintaining the composure and stature of a truly compassionate businessperson.
