Team and Family

Kush Desai

Founder

Kush was raised in Southern California by parents who had an affinity for small business entrepreneurship. After owning several businesses, Kush’s father purchased a small motel in a run-down part of North Las Vegas.

 

Kush and his family moved to Nevada where Kush learned to fully manage operations, financials and customer service for the motel. Later, Kush and his father went into constructing, opening and operating new hotels within the Super 8 and Best Western franchises.

From there, they acquired and fully operated hotels within the Quality Inn, Red Roof Inn, and independent brands.

With this small-business background, Kush decided to test his skills in the corporate world by becoming an attorney. Kush first practiced mergers/acquisitions and corporate transactions within a law firm, and later went in-house to a company called “Beachbody” to work closely with business owners. Over 12 years, Kush earned 6 promotions ultimately becoming “Executive Vice President, Deputy General Counsel and Assistant Corporate Secretary” and took the company public on the New York Stock Exchange in 2021.

 

After achieving his goals in the corporate world, Kush realized his passion for entrepreneurship never faded. Drawing on his experience running small businesses, Kush founded Prush Capital with a dream to own and operate a small business which serves a need in the community and provides meaningful employment to others.

Kush received his B.A. from USC (University of Southern California) in Los Angeles, CA and his J.D. from the American University, Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C., graduating Cum Laude. Kush is a husband, father, exercise and yoga fanatic, and outdoor enthusiast
