As the Sr. VP of Sales & Marketing, I get to understand the needs of our clients from the front lines. I love understanding what the client needs and making sure we deliver that.

Nathan Fornwalt Sr. VP Operations and IP
One of the things I have always enjoyed most is connecting with new people in various industries, learning about their business, their goals, and their unique challenges and together envisioning and realizing a customized solution that exceeds expectations. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to work in a startup context to develop and deliver successful products that meet the needs of a broader set of customers. As the Sr. VP of Operations and IP at KiZAN, I am able to pursue what I love with a focus on developing and packaging technology products that drive value in both of those contexts.
