Mohammad Khan’s work ethic was embedded when he was 10 years old.
Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, he learned the complexities and risks of business ownership at an early age. From stocking inventory at his parents’ convenience store on the weekends to managing their restaurant full-time in high school, Mohammad saw how decisions affect the whole of operations — and by extension, his family’s livelihood.
This empathy laid the bedrock for Mohammad’s professional career. In his roles, he has relied on this perspective of a business owner’s stake. He believes that good strategy comes from seeing the whole picture — and a business’s growth depends on the integrity of its parts.
In 2014, Mohammad joined an international law and CPA firm, becoming its first attorney to earn a Partner role in less than four years. In this time, he built a record of success in representing client interests, including:

To Mohammad, success means creating something greater than himself, but it goes beyond that. It has to leave a lasting, positive impact on those around him.
To deliver results to clients, he relies on his principles of working hard, finding solutions, relationship building, and being in service to others. But Mohammad strives to pay his experience forward in his community as well.
He has had the privilege to work with organizations that foster these core values. Armed with his skill set, Mohammad has served as:
