CMT CANADA: “Entrepreneurial career just what the doctor ordered for Ottawa health-care pioneer”

Sanjay Shah was on a family holiday with his wife and newborn son in Hawaii when he found the beach-induced inspiration to quit his job and follow his dream of running his own business. Maybe it was the Pacific Ocean breeze or maybe it was the better life perspective that one gets after becoming a parent. Whatever it was, Mr. Shah used that 2005 vacation – which he took while on six months of unpaid parental leave – to solidify the foundations for ExecHealth, the first private health-care clinic in Ottawa. “After the six months, I handed in my resignation and said, ‘I’m going to give this thing a try,’” recalls Mr. Shah, 50, while speaking in his downtown office on Albert Street, where the walls are adorned with images shot by Ottawa-based landscape and wildlife photographer Michelle Valberg.
