Safa Rashtchy Leaving Analyst Firm Piper Jaffray

Danny’s reporting Safa Rashtchy’s announcement that he will be leaving his role as financial analyst for Piper Jaffray on June 30th. Here’s part of Safa’s announcement…

My last day at Piper will be June 30, although I will be on vacation for a good part of the time between now and then. I am planning to take at least the second half of the year off, before I decide on my next activity. I remain interested in global investment opportunities in the media, consumer, and technology sectors. In the meantime, there are many interests and causes that I would like to devote more of my time to, during the rest of this year and for as long as I can continue.

Safa has been the head “cheerleader” for the search marketing industry, always there to interpret the subtle nuances of the space, as well as the obligatory financial analysis. I recall the entire industry getting goose bumps when Safa was the first to forecast we’d hit $1 billion in annual spend.

Good luck Safa!
