Manvir Sandhu

I landed my dream job when we started Zennify. I lead a remarkable group of people with a uniquely special culture that seizes opportunities for innovation and delivers amazing results for every kind of business. I enjoy staying active in business and technology groups as part of the Salesforce Partner Advisory Board, the Greater Sacramento Economic Council, and the Sacramento Salesforce User Group. Spending time with my wife and three kids and following football keep me inspired!

Founder & CEO

With 20+ years of experience in technology, consulting, and finance, Manvir has been leading Zennify since Day 1. He was named a 2021 Most Admired CEO by the Sacramento Business Journal.

Nathan Mueller

My life goal is to work on interesting, compelling, and meaningful things all the time. I’ve been lucky enough to work on projects that meet this goal, from our early vaccine projects in Haiti, to founding a company that took on gender equality in tech, to watching Zennify’s team of talented leaders grow via the values we launched with. My other meaningful job is raising my three kids on our farm in Idaho—and getting them out into the wild, whitewater rafting, and camping as much as possible.

Founder & President

Nathan has 20+ years of experience leading and executing global digital transformation projects. As Founder and President of Zennify, he oversees Corporate Strategy, Go to Market and new initiatives.

Jesse Barker

I love solving problems. And I love getting to know people. Doing both daily at Zennify is a dream. I’ve helped countless companies work through their toughest challenges by developing solutions that streamline their operations, improve their bottom lines, and empower their people. I stay inspired by building the Zennify team, teaching the next wave of problem solvers, and spending time with my wife of 16 years and 4 children.

Founder & Director of IT

Problem solving runs in Jesse’s blood. As Zennify’s Swiss Army Knife, Jesse manages internal IT infrastructure, operations, employee programs and more.

Tami Miller

I relate so well to this role with my hands-on operations, consulting and leadership background. Using my 14 years of network contact center management and 17 years of Salesforce experience, I love enabling our teams to deliver the best possible results for our clients, in a workplace they love and feel valued. It’s no secret that I’m a major dog lover, which drove me to hire our first CPO (Chief Puppy Officer). I stay inspired by spending time with my family of humans and pets and our amazing employees.

Chief Operations Officer

As a Six Sigma Blackbelt and certified Salesforce consultant with over 20 years of leadership experience, Tami oversees Zennify’s internal operations and manages numerous company programs.

Heather Rhyne-Christensen

Technology is an integral part of business strategy and working with our customers and partners to get results motivates me. I’m awed by the Zennify team’s depth of talent and heart. In all my years as a consultant, finance executive, and business leader, I’ve never worked with a more dedicated and innovative team. I stay inspired by serving on Salesforce’s Financial Services Advisory Board and Finance Advisory Board for Orfalea College of Business, Cal Poly, to help the next generation of leaders succeed.

Chief Revenue Officer

Heather is a seasoned business strategist with 13+ years of experience in consulting and financial services. She is instrumental in Zennify's GTM and partner alliance strategy.

Jim Burns

I help executives profitably scale their businesses and optimize investor portfolios. I’ve held several CFO roles and spent more than two decades as a leader for HP. I serve on two advisory boards at Santa Clara University, the Leavey School of Business and the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education, and am the proud father of two Santa Clara graduates.

Advisory Chief Financial Officer

Jim is an accomplished Silicon Valley executive with a 30+ year record of excellence in operations and finance.

Joe Lanier

My favorite question is “How does this thing work?” That curiosity led me to computer science and a career in software engineering. After discovering a knack for designing tech solutions to solve business problems, I moved into tech sales. I love it when my customers and teams experience the “ah-ha” moments and strive to build an environment of innovation, integrity, and care. When I’m not coding or coaching, I love spending time with my wife and two daughters.

Vice President of Sales

Joe is Zennify’s chief growth officer—AKA VP of Sales. He brings his tech experience and expertise to the world of sales to translate business challenges into technology solutions for our customers.

Philip Paz

I’m a technologist at heart. I geek out over the latest technology trends and share my love for digital innovation with my team to foster talent, diversify their skills, and provide opportunities for growth. I feel lucky to be part of such a dynamic and rewarding team. I keep my eyes on the future, but the support and love of my wife and daughter keep me grounded. In my free time, you’ll find me in my loft, guitar in hand, living out my rockstar dreams.

Vice President of Technology

Philip brings 20+ years of technology leadership to Zennify. He keeps our tech and business initiatives aligned by applying his deep knowledge of business strategy, enterprise architecture, data, cloud, and analytics.

Saleema Fazal

Creative problem solving is foundational to all parts of life. When I got my Master's degree in Design, I realized that unencumbered thinking, paired with tough challenges, yielded epic results. I love the art of the possible—when it comes with execution to deliver. Outside of Zennify, I spend my time seeing as much live music as possible, enjoying the beauty of nature, advocating for the em dash, and consuming all the tasty things.

Vice President of Marketing

Saleema has spent her career growing professional services firms. She brings her unique mix of creativity, strategy, and execution to the Zennify team.

Janet Larsen

From the beginning, Zennify has placed a great deal of emphasis on people. And it’s safe to say that supporting this talented team, building programs that engage people in their growth, and fostering development are what get me out of bed in the morning. Leveraging this passion to help scale our organization without losing sight of our culture and values has been a delight. I appreciate a good glass of wine and sometimes even a bad one.

Vice President of People Operations

Janet loves the PEOPLE aspect of working in People Ops. She brings 25+ years of experience supporting individuals, managers, and executives in attaining their career and business objectives.

Alexa Jimenez

I thrive bringing organization to the chaos. Having worked for various startups, I found success growing and sustaining delivery organizations by honing in on the areas where gaps existed. I thoroughly enjoy developing repeatable processes and playbooks to create integration between Sales, Delivery and Operations. I’m a born and raised native New Yorker and in my spare time you can find me running in Central Park, traveling with my husband and reading.

Vice President of Operations & Strategy

Rio

I am an australian labradoodle and am the goodest boy. In my free time when I'm not hiking or chasing squirrels, I am a foster brother to all types of breeds and I help them build confidence to find their furever homes! I love all people, dogs, cats, chickens, and even have a potbellied pig friend. I am so excited for this quarter as Zennify's CPO!

Chief Puppy Officer

Rio is from San Diego, CA and wholeheartedly agrees with Zennify's “People First” belief. Zennify has grrrrr-eat benefits for both people & canines like employer-paid health insurance, pet insurance, and paw-ternity leave.
