About Fasha (Farshad) Mahjoor

Architect, Businessman, Industrialist, Philanthropist

Fasha Mahjoor is the founder and CEO of Phenomenex. Established in 1982, Phenomenex is a global leader in the research, development, manufacturing and distribution of leading edge chromatography solutions. With over 700 employees and offices in 15 countries and a network of 60 international partners, Fasha oversees a global organization with a unique culture dedicated to the advancement of the sciences and defined by its enormous passion and investment in supporting worthy philanthropic causes.

Born in Persia and educated in England, Fasha completed high school in Worcester and obtained his undergraduate degree in Architecture from Manchester Metropolitan University, and then went on to complete his Masters degree in Architecture graduating with distinction from the University of Southern California in 1980. After graduation, Fasha and two other alumnae joined forces to start a boutique architectural firm in Beverly Hills, CA, and successfully completed several projects during difficult economic times.

But, Fasha would soon sidestep the world of architecture and move into the world of high technology, science and chemistry. Through a unique and ultimately fortuitous twist of fate, Fasha was presented with an entrepreneurial opportunity in the unfamiliar world of chromatography (separation sciences). At that time, the chromatography industry was a very crowded space with as many as 500 companies, including large multinationals such as Merck, Dupont, Hewlett-Packard, and even IBM.

Attempting to compete in this high-tech market space as a one-man company without any scientific background or funds against so many powerful players was risky if not just plain foolish. Nevertheless, with determination, laser focus, and an exceptional work ethic, Fasha taught himself the business. Over the next 30 years, he parlayed success after success. Astonishingly from the beginning and still true today, Phenomenex has never sought financing from outside sources—it has always been self-funded. The acumen and ability to open new markets, attract and keep customers came naturally to Fasha. Unique marketing approaches and best-in-industry customer service were early differentiators.

Focused investment in research and development programs soon led to the introduction of innovative products that have become the hallmark of the company. These products offer scientists the essential tools they need to improve lab productivity and advance scientific discovery. Over the years, competitors fell by the wayside as Phenomenex established itself as the market leader.

While orchestrating Phenomenex’s meteoric rise to the top of the chromatography industry, Fasha simultaneously built a company culture rooted in his own beliefs and passions—a culture that values ability and contribution over seniority, and encourages open communication, along with an open-door policy. Employees are surrounded by an exceptional and pleasing architectural working environment. They are rewarded with unconventional benefits, from onsite massages, relaxation rooms, gymnasiums to stay fit and healthy, to paid-time off for philanthropy and access to other non-traditional, unique, and uncommon benefits.

Fasha has developed a fun, sporty and entrepreneurial spirit at Phenomenex that has contributed to an average employee tenure that is now more than double that of the industry and an average management tenure that is approaching 20 years. This most unique company culture is consistent across all Phenomenex research and manufacturing plants and subsidiaries globally and has been recognized with several prestigious awards, including the Wall Street Journal "Best Workplace" and the International "Spirit at Work" Award.

A diverse range of advanced products are manufactured at three research and manufacturing sites within the United States (Torrance headquarters, Sutter Creek in Northern California, and in Golden, Colorado). After 9 Research and Development (R&D 100) Awards, sometimes referred to as the “Oscars of Science,” Fasha’s company has emerged as the global leader within the chromatography industry providing solutions for scientists in industries critical to the health and well being of people, animals and the environment at large. Fasha finds it especially gratifying that his company plays such a vital role in the betterment of the human condition. Phenomenex’s products help scientists find cures for diseases, help food companies ensure that their products are safe, help environmental labs keep our planet clean, and help clinical labs diagnose diseases before it's too late.

For his leadership in the progress of science, in late October 2013, Fasha was voted amongst the top 100 in the world, influencing advancements in the field of analytical sciences, in "The Power List 2013," surveyed and published in October by "The Analytical Scientist," the leading industry publication.

The importance of this connection to community and humanity is perhaps most clearly articulated by Fasha in the company’s mission statement: “…it is our responsibility and foremost mission to promote the growth, prosperity and well-being of those we serve: our customers, our employees, and humanity.” Nourishing and supporting humanitarian values in the workplace is considered a founding company principle without which the organization cannot survive or thrive. Fasha says this principle “has brought to life an essential humanitarian vision within the organization. By building an institution that is both progressive and enlightened, and by setting new standards in serving our employees and customers, we can transform our world in many good and worthwhile ways.” It is for these reasons that the management and employees of Phenomenex find themselves so passionately involved in a wide array of philanthropic activities. Almost every week, one of the global Phenomenex companies is involved with some type of humanitarian cause, from disaster relief to rebuilding homes to educating local underprivileged students. Through these hands-on efforts, Fasha and the employees of Phenomenex have donated countless sums of funds, resources, time, and energy to improve the world around them.

In September 2012, Fasha descended down 87 floors of The Shard, Europe’s tallest building, alongside Prince Andrew and a small group of philanthropists, raising over £2,000,000/$3,167,800 for the educational charity.

For two days in November 2012, thru collaboration with the Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) non-profit organization, Fasha and the Phenomenex USA team hand-made 163,296 meals for starving children in developing countries. Over the past two years, in partnership with both Feed My Starving Children and Stop Hunger Now, Phenomenex has packed over 360,000 meals that have been sent to children in North Korea, Haiti, the Philippines, and Africa.

In May 2013, Fasha was given an Ellis Island Medal of Honor, “which ranks among [the United States’] most prestigious awards” (Ref: NECO). The National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations (NECO) honors leaders who; dedicate their lives to helping others, preserve and celebrate the values of their ancestry group, strive for tolerance and acceptance, and who share their personal and professional gifts for the benefit of humanity. Previous winners include 6 United States presidents and Nobel Prize winners.

In August 2013, Fasha was elected to the Board of Directors of the American Red Cross Los Angeles Region, the second largest in the United States, serving over 10 million people. He was recently invited to attend the annual Heroes Luncheon, an event that honors local heroes who exemplify the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross every day.

Currently, Fasha and his team at Phenomenex India are developing, assisting, and participating in the running of the Cheers Foundation Orphanage in Hyderabad, India, including hosting regular events and hands-on projects with the children, holding food drives, and providing the funds necessary to send every child to a local reputable school with clothes, shoes, and books.

The comfort kits contained shampoo, body soap, a washcloth, toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, deodorant, shave cream, razor and a comb, all packaged in a reusable toiletry bag. All leftover toiletries were donated to the VA Hospital in Torrance. Phenomenex sponsored 100% of the event costs and materials. USA

Alongside a handful of other adventurous philanthropists and led by the Chairman of The Outward Bound Trust, His Royal Highness The Duke of York, Prince Andrew, the group abseiled/rappeled down 1,056 feet (the highest ever attempted by any civilian) all in support of the educational charity.

The Outward Bound Trust has enabled over one million underprivileged youth to participate in challenging outdoor programs, providing life lessons in responsibility, teamwork, and leadership. Through the education and courses provided by The Outward Bound Trust (and its many global affiliates), young people clearly see, perhaps for the first time, what they are truly capable of achieving.
