Last week I, like everyone else who knew him, was shocked and deeply saddened by the death of Hanif Sazen, CEO of Saffron Interactive. I worked with Hanif at Saffron for several years and will always be grateful that this was my first experience of the working world.
Saffron has always been an exciting and inspirational company. It is also a friendly and fun place to work. In many ways, it’s like a family: lots of former employees are still in touch with each other and with the company. Saffron will always be special to me, and I know I’m not alone in that.
All this is due in huge part to Hanif. He was ambitious, innovative and completely committed. He was also generous and supportive of everyone he worked with. Saffron will not be the same without Hanif, but everything he did to create the Saffron family means that the things he worked so hard for will continue to grow and make him proud.
