Early in his career, he worked in the private sector for the accounting firm Arthur Andersen in Detroit and Chicago and then at the World Bank assisting developing world economies.  Over twenty years ago he accepted a job at Randolph Macon College teaching economics and his family made Virginia home.  He later became chairman of the economics and business department and also chaired the ethics minor program at the college.

He served two Virginia governors on their Economic Advisory Boards, as an Advisor to State Senator Walter Stosch, and also served as President of the Virginia Association of Economists.

The Brat family resides in Henrico County.  He and his wife, Laura, have two children, Jonathan and Sophia who attend public schools in Virginia.

Since 9/11 the USA Patriot Act has effectively excluded terrorists and their networks from having access to financial and commercial banking systems all around the world.  While the approach has been very effective, the Treasurer of ChildFund International will explain in simple and nontechnical language how an antiquated funding system from a thousand years ago easily evades all these protections and get around every advanced surveillance technique.  Can anyone fund anyone else in the world without limits?

Sassan is also a regular contributor to the AFP Exchange Magazine and the Global Treasury blog “gtnews.” He has been published extensively in academic peer reviewed journals such as The Journal of Business Continuity, and the Journal of Corporate Treasury Management.  He is frequently quoted in the Wall Street Journal, and the Economist’s Treasury Perspectives Magazine and in May 2018 he was aired on the BBC.
