Suraj Shrestha, Chief Operations Officer
By two measures a COO is known- the size of the couch in his office and the texture of his suits. By all means, Suraj has got none! At SastoDeal, he is rather known by two other measures: passion and business expertise. Suraj got his bachelor’s degree in Management from University of Central Oklahoma, United States and immediately put his management skills in to practice at SastoDeal. A great follower of Steve Jobs, he believes in everything simple yet magnificent. He has incorporated this culture into the company thus what you see and feel about SastoDeal is the direct impact of his passion and expertise.

Prakiran Shrestha, Director Of Marketing
He once tried to convince a zoo-keeper to engrave the company’s logo in the back of an elephant. Prakiran tells his mother to think “outside the box” when asked what he wants for dinner. And he uses PowerPoint slides to explain how his day went. For an outright marketer like him, he would only fit to be the Director of Marketing at SastoDeal. Even Seth Godin would not be able to take his place at this company. While he is not planning for his next strategic move, he finds himself caught behind the books at Ace College, trying to secure a Bachelor’s degree in Business. Watch out for this guy!
