Day In The Life: CEO & Co-Founder

Oct 28, 2019

What is your position at Zennify?

I am the CEO & Co-Founder of Zennify.


How long have you been working with Zennify?

Since the beginning, circa 2013.


What does your average day look like?

After some morning yoga and meditation, I like to start the workday with early momentum - something to jump start the Zenn.

We start every week with an operations meeting where the leaders collaborate on top customer highlights - it helps us get our focus.

From there the day follows the ebb and flow between discussions clients, our people, and Salesforce - embracing the here and now to stay close to the business and foster relationships. At times we lift up a level to engage in the creative and strategic, looking ahead and challenging ourselves to sustain our competitive edge.

I love to finish the day with a long run to clear my head before spending the evening with my amazing family.


What motivates you at work?

Client success - nothing is more motivating than getting praise from our clients for a job well done. It's also a real joy watching our people grow and fly - it makes me proud that we've built an amazing place to work and a culture that fosters growth and innovation.


What is your favorite work perk?

The Zennify branding and swag is legit. People must think it's the only wardrobe I have as I wear it everyday !


What is your favorite part of your role?

There is a special moment in the world of Zennify consulting during a client discovery where our professionals (architects, consultants, etc) truly capture and articulate the essence of what our client needs to breakthrough - there is like this crazy positive energy in the room that is addictive, I wish I could bottle it up.


What do you enjoy most about working for Zennify?

I really enjoy having everyday conversations with our people. We've been fortunate and blessed with amazing talent at all levels of the firm - I think we have the best consulting team/firm on the planet - that's real talk.


What's one piece of advice you would give someone considering a career in your role?

Do it for the love first - the innovation, the solution, customer success, your people. Everything else should balance out accordingly - that's the true ZENN.
