Raj Goel- President, Co-Founder
Family man, entrepreneur, IT expert, consultant and public speaker, Raj Goel is a man for all seasons, a renaissance figure in the world of computing, who bridges the gap between your business and the ever-changing world of technology.
Our computers are now our most essential business tools and for them to work to their full capacity, they need regular fine-tuning. Of course, anyone can get a scruffy IT drone to look at their systems, run a few system checks and install patches and upgrades. But if you want results that pay dividends and ensure your expert staff can work to their full potential, you have to put your IT in the hands of someone who understands the exacting needs of your company. You need an expert who is familiar with all the ins-and-outs of the business environment and how to adapt and thrive.
On the East Coast, Raj Goel, as any of his loyal clients will tell you, is the man to call upon. As an IT guy, Raj’s credentials are impeccable. He is the co-founder of Brainlink International, Inc. – an IT consulting firm based in the Big Apple. As a 25-year veteran of the IT industry, Raj has personally consulted with everyone from Fortune 100 corporations to small family companies and all have benefited from his advice.
But Raj’s knowledge is not limited to IT. Over his career he has gained expertise and vital contacts working with insurance agents, financial planners, real estate agents, pharmaceutical and healthcare companies. For them, he is not only the go-to guy on time-sensitive, privacy and security oriented solutions but also brings his massive experience in reducing costs, increasing staff and infrastructure performance and garnering client satisfaction.
Raj is fueled by his passion for his job, his love of helping people and, as he admits, just a little bit of bourbon. This is a man to be trusted to help you and your company go forward.

Sharon Goel, Co-Founder & CFO
With a Masters in Education, and a passion for archeology, Sharon is equally comfortable digging up bones, or diving deep into invoices and billing history.
Sharon & Raj met at Binghamton University in 1990, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. They also hold the distinction of being one of the first Hindu-Jewish couples in the NYC area, and their wedding was covered by NHK Television (Japan) and the New York Newsday newspaper. As CFO and co-founder of Brainlink, Sharon’s day job is managing the finances, resolving client questions and keeping the billing and expenses under control. In her off hours, Sharon enjoys sci-fi and fantasy novels, murder mysteries and CSI.
Fabian Moy, Senior Administrator
A graduate of the New York City College of Technology, and a natural born geek, Fabian (“fai” or “dark knight” to his friends) is an expert at Windows Servers and Exchange Server management.
He’s also exceptionally gifted at malware detection and removal (viruses, popups, spyware). Highly responsive, very polite, and quiet are terms commonly used to describe Fabian. In his off-hours, Fai can be found killing the demons of Diablo III or taking the field in Battlefield 3. Normally dressed in black, this dark knight of the internet is just an email or phone call away.
