Now Entering Russ's World
Sanjay Shah founded Autism Rocks in 2014, three years after his son was diagnosed with autism. Shah’s vision was to raise much-needed finances to fund autism research. Sanjay has done an exceptional job since Autism Rocks’ inception, but converging minds generally produce greater outcomes. Shah recently hired brothers Pete and Will Best onto Autism Rocks’ board of trustees.
Pete Best has extensive formal knowledge as a financial professional, whose last occupation was chief operating officer of Icap, one of London’s premier brokerage firms. The addition of Pete and his 21-year career in the financial sector brings a much-needed financial component to Autism Rocks. The organization is expected to restructure donation packages, unveil new financing strategies, and ultimately raise more money.
Will Best has experience in television and movie production, which are directly applicable to Autism Rocks’ central financing component of hosting concerts. Best has managed advertising campaigns, produced commercials, and firmly understands all facets of broadcasted marketing. The Best brothers are expected to revamp the already-great Autism Rocks foundation.
Sanjay Shah is a retired financial professional who practiced accounting for premier investment banks among the likes of Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley. Shah earned a healthy salary practicing accounting but became derailed from his career during the 2008 worldwide financial crisis. Shah’s professional derailment started the birthing of Solo Capital.
Solo Capital currently holds a net worth of $15 million, controls assets worth $67 million, and an operating cash flow of $30 million. In layman’s terms, Solo Capital has grown tremendously. Shah himself holds a net worth of $280 million, much of which resulted from Solo Capital.
Autism Rocks has featured some of the world’s most popular artists, including Snoop Dogg, Michael Buble, and Drake. Funding from Autism Rocks grants autistic children and their caregivers entry to counseling sessions, social workshops, art classes, and the annual concert. The majority of proceeds have funded Cambridge University’s Autism Research Center, the world’s largest autism research facility.
