Saeideh Fard


I’m an executive leader recognized consistently for bringing operational perspectives to financial decisions in fast paced, transforming organizations. I’ve lead teams through innovative and complex change projects in VC, PE, and owner managed private entities within the technology, media, communications, retail and travel sectors.

In addition to my financial roles leading in fast paced evolving organizations, I’m a culture, and change advocate. Focused on people and teams, I’ve elevated contributions of individual players, developed accountability across all levels, and motivated teams to achieve stretch goals.

Perseverance and grit are two words that describe me. I’m known for not settling, holding myself and others accountable, and being decisive. My life experience has given me the gift of seeing opportunity in every scenario. Fostering analytically driven growth cultures and mentoring others to achieve success are my reasons for doing what I do.

My areas of expertise include:

SaaS, Software, professional services, cross functional leadership, project management, decision support via business intelligence (BI) report modelling and KPI setting, strategic and financial planning, financial reporting, audit and internal controls, tax and compliance, international transfer pricing, systems implementation and migrations, financial analysis of strategic alternatives including product pricing and sales incentive pay design.
