Winning organizations can see value where others do not, and build value in ways others cannot. Sajjad understands how to make that happen. He founded Two Six Capital, the first firm to use data science to create an advantage in the private equity investment and value creation process. Since then, his vision has influenced over $30 billion in closed private equity transactions, based on analysis of $160 billion worth of transaction data.
His personal focus is on using proprietary technology assets and statistical or machine learning models to create data-driven business value. He developed a playbook and sourced intellectual property based on 25 years of academic research from leading business schools. He and his team have applied these capabilities across multiple industries, including telecommunications, media, and technology; consumer/retail; financial services; industrial products; and business services.
He joined West Monroe in its acquisition of Two Six Capital. Previously he worked with a private equity firm in Dubai and spent five years at Infosys where he had leadership responsibilities. He began his career at M&T Bank. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
He loves the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship in his Silicon Valley neighborhood. He aspires to visit every living space designed by his favorite architect, Sir David Adjaye. He and his wife have climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. His daily endorphin ritual includes listening to “Happy” by Pharrell and his favorite movie is Hidden Figures.
He is a member of the Advisory Board for the Wharton Customer Analytics. He is also the co-chair of the STEAM Committee of Castilleja School in Palo Alto. In addition, he is a member of Bowdoin AF/AM 50, an affinity group formed to celebrate 50 years of Africana studies at Bowdoin College.
