Who Recommends/Name Role in OWASP Recommendation Content
1 Giorgio Fedon Owasp Italy TD Nishi is a talented professional with specific knowledge about large corporates needs for Appsec
2 Keith Turpin Project Leader Nishi represents a large financial sector service and technology provider. She brings extensive industry knowledge and represents a customer set that can directly benefit from OWASP projects. As a industry partner she brings a user based view that will help provide a useful perspective to the committee. Combine this with her excellent technical knowledge as a system architect and she will be an asset as a committee member.
3 Dinis Cruz O2 Platform project leader Nishi is going to add a lot of value to this committee. She is a good representative to the type of Industry contact OWASP needs to reach out, and the quality of her contributions to OWASP projects (like the CTB) speak for themselves
4 Anurag Agarwal Project Leader Nishi is very dynamic and hard working. She has practical experience in handling appsec in a big company. Her experience and knowledge is crucial in OWASP's mission
5 Greg Genung Austin OWASP Membership Director, LASCON Board Member, and OWASP Global Connections Committee Applicant Nishi's contributions to OWASP over the last 4 years that I have known her have been large and non-trivial. She jumps right in and supports any OWASP activity with energy for the organization and passion for her trade. Nishi was a contributor to the successful OWASP LASCON in Texas. Her professionalism, leadership, and knowledge in App-Sec makes her a shoe-in for education-related activies, especially community outreach & industry outreach.
-- Joe Bernik Former Chapter lead and Commitee member Nishi Welcome to the OWASP  Industry commitee and thank you for what I know will be a great contribution!
-- Alexander Fry GIC Member In addition to the other stellar recommendations for Nishi; she works hard, does good work, and completes projects. In the GIC, we have a large number of projects to complete and I know Nishi's contributions will be appreciated.
-- James Wickett OWASP Austin Chapter VP, LASCON Co-Founder Nishi was crucial to the success of LASCON and did a wonderful job on the board. She does a great job at whatever she puts her mind to. Also, she is pretty dang funny and outgoing and lets be honest, that is a rarity in the security community. I fully recommend her for this position.
