Maksim Piskunov CFA | Past Chair

Having started as an opportunity to give back for a finance guy, Findhelp became truly meaningful after he listened in on a few calls during his board orientation. Growing up in the Soviet Union at the time of its collapse, Maksim was deeply impacted by the consequences of the torn social safety net.

Maksim originally joined the Findhelp Board of Directors in 2009 but took a two year break to complete his MBA at the University of Chicago - Booth School of Business. As a former Treasurer and member of the Finance committee, he has made sure that the financial footing for Findhelp is as sound as possible. His prior experience as a strategy consultant coupled with a CFA designation made him ideally suited for the role of President.
