Who We Are

Samuel Chaikin

Analyst, Quantitative Research, Los Angeles

As a Quantitative Research Analyst, Sam works through all stages of the project lifecycle to help reveal insightful findings for clients. He is fascinated by the idea of working with big data to uncover its complexities and ultimately deliver strategic and actionable results.

Though originally from Cleveland Ohio, Sam graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans where he completed dual majors in Marketing and Management. During his time as an undergraduate, he took several classes in research analytics which catalyzed his interest in the field, eventually culminating in a role at Kelton. Outside of the classroom, he gave college tours and was a very involved soccer player, playing at both the club and intramural level. Sam explored his professional interests through marketing and analytics internships at Top of the World, a collegiate apparel company, and Ortholite, an insole manufacturing company.

When he was younger, Sam and his family spent five years in Shanghai, China. From there, he was able to travel all over Asia and, as a result, he is always searching for new places to visit. A newcomer to Los Angeles, Sam can’t wait to settle in and explore all the incredible things the West Coast has to offer. Outside of work, he can be found watching sports, fishing, binge watching the Office or listening to music – but he is very eager to begin his hunt for the best bowl of Ramen in LA.
