Fehza is our youngest and newest C-Suite addition. At only 6 months old, Fehza has been promoted to Pet’s @ Statsig’s newly formed Chief Remote Officer role to help our remote furry friends thrive. Working remote comes with its own benefits and challenges, as Fehza can attest to first hand. There are always feet to sit on under desks and cuddles to be had, but the hoomans are often on important calls which means less attention and no squeaky toys. Fehza is a strong proponent for work life balance, and advocates for morning, mid-morning, pre-lunch, post-lunch, and early afternoon walks.

The team wouldn’t be able to function without her -Kirby, CEO
