Shash leads the practice in helping companies of all shapes, sizes, and forms become more risk intelligent. Obsessed with all things risk, strategy, and behavioral economics, Shash majored in risk management in college thinking it was “cool and niche.” Hedging his bets (unforgivable segue), Shash went back to school to learn “how to do numbers.” With 14+ years of risk management roles in a diverse set of industries (publicly-traded firms, a start-up, and a non-profit governmental entity), he decided to flex his never used entrepreneurial muscles. Using every ounce of imagination, he named the firm after his dog’s breed.
Originally from India and at the ripe old age of 17, Shash relocated to Philadelphia to begin college. Entirely confounded by the complexities of baseball, American football, actual football, rugby, cricket and golf, he has settled on tennis as his sport of choice. He also dabbles in squash, racquetball, and chess.
When not in the office, you’ll find him bragging about his latest 3-mile run to anyone who will listen, swinging a tennis racquet in the general vicinity of a tennis ball, or failing to pacify his infant. Pandemic-permitting, Shash splits his time between New Zealand and the US servicing clients in North America and Oceania.
Steve leads strategy (the grown-up stuff) while managing client relationships in the Americas. Steve also helps us (and you) make sense of data and numbers. If there is a story to be told with numbers, Steve is the master storyteller you want. Equally judicious with his words as he is with finances, Steve communicates with precision. With 14+ years of experience at a Fortune 25 company, Steve has held a variety of corporate finance, strategy, and leadership roles. Acquisitions, divestitures, start-ups – you name it, Steve has been part of it.
Originally from Northeast Pennsylvania, Steve splits his time between Philadelphia and New York. Steve calls Philly home but favors Real Madrid or any Champions League match he can find over American “football.”
When not in the office, you’ll find him donating universally accepted Type O- blood (a literal bleeding heart), debating whether his gym membership is worth the $$$, planning his next travel adventure, or trying to regrow his surfer hair.

Originally from Wisconsin, Christina is an unrepentant Wisconsin Badger fan who has lived and worked on both coasts of the US. She currently resides in a small surfing community on the east coast of New Zealand.
Outside of the office and the operating room, you will find her running with her pooch (Bennett), pacifying her very clingy baby, or counterintuitively losing her zen while attempting that perfect yoga pose.
