Sarish Kasat

Sarish is a native of Nashville, who loved southern pecan pie enough to stay and attend Vanderbilt University. Turned out to be win-win; Vandy was, and continues to be one of the top universities in the U.S.

He graduated with honors in 2008 with a B.A. in Economics, minors in financial economics and corporate strategy, and a burgeoning financial crisis surrounding him. This wasn’t the greatest of combinations; nevertheless, he emerged from Vandy with a number of job offers from top tier financial institutions. He took a job that would eventually lead him to New York City with Wells Fargo Securities, where he achieved the title of Vice President and led his team’s efforts to build business opportunities in parts of Asia. A preeminent juggler of passion projects, Sarish co-founded the revitalized version of the Rajasthanis Abroad Youth Samaj (RAYS) in 2010, a cultural organization focused on preserving specific parts of Indian culture in the U.S. The organization grew exponentially during his four years of presidency, hosting three national conventions along the way.

With a love for building businesses and mentoring youth (he was a mainstay at Big Brothers Big Sisters in New York), Sarish left Wells Fargo in 2015, moved to Chicago, and eventually joined Admissionado as General Manager, heading up all things related to the undergraduate business. Though now a proud Chicagoan, Sarish stays true to his roots. You won’t find a bigger fan of the Tennessee Titans, Vanderbilt Commodores, and hot chicken north of the Mason-Dixon line.
