Last month two all-stars joined the Rhiza leadership team, bringing their unique start-up experience, industry vision, and corporate resolve to our Pittsburgh headquarters.
Zachariah Sharek, our new SVP of Data Strategy, joined us from Civic Science. Zach recently completed his PhD in Organizational Behavior and Theory from Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business. His research in judgment and decision-making and behavioral economics has been discussed in the Wall Street Journal, LA Times, Financial Times, Business Week, and USA Today. Zach’s ready to blaze new trails in our data partnerships with Acxiom, Nielsen, Rentrak, Kantar, Experian, comScore, Polk, and dozens more.
We also welcomed a new Director of Finance, Laurie Hochberg. Laurie was most recently the CFO at M*Modal during their successful acquisition and subsequent IPO. She holds a BS in Accounting from Clarion University of Pennsylvania and is a certified CPA. At Rhiza, Laurie will be responsible for directing financial and accounting duties, accounts payable/receivable processing, financial reporting, and she will lead budget and forecast creation.
We’re excited to have Zach and Laurie join the Rhiza team, bringing with them tremendous perspective, polish and passion. We’re now 25 strong, and every single employee contributes to our product vision, our customers’ satisfaction and our shopping-list for snacks in the company kitchen. Sound like an exciting place to work? We sure think so!
We’re hiring awesomely smart and fun people. Check out our careers page to apply.
