A consistent theme throughout Saddik’s leadership career has been engaging companies to perform above and beyond their expectations. As founding team member of a successful start-up, Saddik led his company to dominate its market segment, achieving national recognition as an Inc. 500 company (#104 in 2005) and succeeding in a successful M&A exit.

In another case, he directed the growth of companies with elements of new monthly reoccurring revenue (MRR) generation, including sales, and has led corporate branding and marketing initiatives.
