Sanjay Sathe earned a master of business administration from the Asian Institute of Management. He was an executive for global corporations for two decades, serving as vice president for enterprise data management for Sabre Holdings, a leader in travel commerce. Before that, he was senior vice president of marketing for Brierley & Partners. After finding the experience of searching for a new job frustrating and inefficient, Sathe decided to create a company that would search job listings on jobseekers’ behalf. That was the genesis of RiseSmart in 2007.
