Usha Sanghrajka is Big Five’s CFO. Originally from Sudan, she has worked hand and glove with her husband, Mahen, from the beginning of their fledging company. She is the heart of Big Five, yet continues to work quietly and tirelessly in the background.
Her enthusiasm today harks back to her first safari into
Tanzania during the annual migration of thousands upon thousands of wildebeest and zebra. On the vast Serengeti, at one point there were so many animals crowded around and next to their vehicle they had to stop moving.
Surrounded by so many wildebeest, zebra, antelope, and, never far off, lion and cheetah, she was mesmerized. “I watched as all these animals moved past me. It was such an amazing moment for me,” Usha recalled. It was in that moment that she realized how important it was to share this experience with the world.
You may never meet Usha in person, as she steadfastly shuns the spotlight, but you will see her touch in every aspect of Big Five, including in the founding of the company’s nonprofit arm, the Spirit of Big Five Foundation in 2007.
