Kashif Khan is the consummate businessman.

Growing up in Vancouver, B.C., Kashif witnessed his immigrant parents' struggles to establish themselves in their new country. Inspired by their iron-clad work ethic and resourcefulness, Kashif developed an industrious entrepreneurial spirit from a young age. While his high school peers were languishing in minimum wage jobs, Kashif was hard at work starting his first business.

Kashif spent his early business career with several luxury brand companies before moving into working with major auction houses. This professional evolution provided him the invaluable opportunity to travel and conduct auctions in every major city in Canada, as well as across the continental United States and in London, Hong Kong, and Dubai. After mastering the internal and public operations of the auction business Kashif moved on to purchase Ritchies Auctioneers, the most exclusive auction house in Canada.

Kashif's corporate success and business expertise have grown through strategic partnerships and buyouts in domestic and international real estate development, public and media relations, private equity, manufacturing and venture capital. Now situated in Toronto, Kashif Khan has elevated himself from his humble beginnings to become an important and sought-after member of Canada's business community, appearing regularly in Canadian community and business media.
