As the economy continues to improve and research and consulting for asset management firms at kasina grows, the firm has hired three new professionals.

Saadiah Freeman joins as a senior managing consultant, Helen Gurina as a consultant and Jesse Mark as a research analyst.

“Given the environment of the past two years, companies are rethinking the fundamentals of their business and asking kasina to help them find ways of evolving their business models to ensure long-term viability,” said Steven Miyao, CEO of kasina.

“We are thrilled to add Saadiah, Helen and Jesse to the kasina family. Saadiah and Helen’s extensive experience working with senior executives will enable them to guide our clients through these tricky times, and Jesse’s research experience will be invaluable as we provide industry leaders with the critical data and insights that they need to run their businesses.”

Freeman was previously a consultant with Boston Consulting Group and was an investment banker with Babcock & Brown in Australia, Europe and the U.S. She will work with Senior Consultant Rubesh Jacobs, who previously was with Booz Allen Hamilton and has been with kasina since February 2010.

Gurina was previously a software developer with Leading Market Technologies. Previously, she worked at Investor Group Services where she completed due diligence and strategy review cases for private equity and sell-side clients in a wide range of industries.

Mark comes to kasina from NERA Economic Consulting where he performed economic analysis for subprime and credit crisis-related litigation.
