Shad is a CFO/VP of Finance at Optima Office and has been working here since 2021. He received his degree in Business Administration, Finance at Cal State University, Long Beach. He has worked primarily in the Hospitality industry with private equity-backed companies, and was most recently the CFO of a golf course and hospitality company called Heritage Golf Group.

With Optima, Shad has gained exposure to a variety of other industries, including construction, engineering, lending, and non-profit companies.

Shad loves working at Optima because of the flexibility, variety, and challenge of learning new systems and processes. He likes the support that Optima provides, and he never feels like he is alone or lacking the resources needed to improve a client’s situation. Shad is relatively new to consulting, and Optima has provided a framework and roadmap to keep him on the right track. He also enjoys company-sponsored social events since he is able to connect with colleagues whom he has not yet worked with.

Shad's favorite pastime outside of work is long-distance running and spending time with his family camping in National and State Parks.
