Autism Rocks has two new faces on its Board of Trustees. According to a press release made on PR Newswire by the founder of the organization, Sanjay Shah, brothers Will Best and Pete Best will be joining the team. Sanjay Shah has had a close relationship with the two brothers since their early campus days, and he strongly feels that their professional skills and experience will positively impact the organization.
Autism Rocks is an organization that holds invitation-only live concerts and charity events to help raise awareness as well as raise funds that are used for autism research. A majority of the funds raised is donated to the Cambridge University Autism Research Center. Sanjay Shah started Autism Rocks in the year 2011 after his son was diagnosed with it at the age of four. The cause has gotten support from a number of world renowned music artists such as Lenny Kravitz, Prince, Michael Buble, Drake and Snoop Dogg.
Will Best’s life and career in music will make him an asset to the organization. Will Best offset his career while he was still in campus organizing underground music events in the city of Manchester. His brother, Pete Best, who is a close friend of Sanjay Shah, has had a long and outstanding career in the London financial markets. He was once the Chief Operating Officer for a leading brokerage firm called ICAP. He, however, left the company in late 2015 to pursue worthy causes. It is likely that Sanjay Shah brought him into the team for his impeccable financial experience which the organization can benefit from.
Sanjay Shah is not only a renowned philanthropist, but he is also a shrewd leader and businessman. He is the founder and chairman of Solo Capital, a financial investment firm he established in the year 2011. Today, the company enjoys the same platform with some of the leading investment companies in the world. Follow him on Twitter for more news and information.
