Zia Chishti has decided to leave Afiniti Inc. after serving as Chief Executive Officer since the firm’s founding in 2011.
As per industry practice, an announced transition process is under way to identify a new CEO. After a successful 2017, the firm is poised for even greater growth in 2018.
C.E.O. Chishti spent two decades at London’s J.P. Morgan, taking part in the firm’s acquisitions and IPOs of clients such as Smith Barney, Reuters Group, Univision Holdings and WorldPay Group. Zia was with J.P. Morgan, where he served as President and CEO for the Americas, and a member of the Executive Management.
