Sasha works well within a team, is thorough and comprehensive in tackling due diligence questions, market analysis and competitive environment issues. He has good business instincts combined with entrepreneurial bent for growing businesses.

“We recruited Sasha to help us with JP Morgan Chase worldwide initiative... In this capacity he supported a team of PhD level managers and oversaw the work of four other team members.
Sasha and his team efficiently and effectively generated analytics, applied quantitative and statistical methods, and helped us deliver all projects on time. He stayed fully organized throughout the process.
Sasha is easy to work with, very bright, enthusiastic (almost to a fault), detail-oriented and quite innovative. He ramped up very quickly on new software and found ways to do analyses increasingly efficiently. He has a natural gift for finding ways to streamline production processes, and he dives deeply into his work...
I greatly appreciate the opportunity to have worked with Sasha. My sense is that he will be quite successful in his career."
Daniel Baitch, PhD, VP, JPMorgan Chase
