The Starting Lineup

Teamwork makes the dream work… literally! We are passionate about technology and believe it can change the world when we work together. Check out our roster below:

Paul Rix

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

For the past 20 years, I have focused on building, buying, and selling companies and my vision for Zanaris is the most exciting endeavor that I have yet been part of. I have a passion for seeing how technology can untap people’s potential to build successful enterprises. My favorite part of Zanaris is the culture we have built that demonstrates this same passion, excitement, and commitment to helping people solve problems through technology. And I am known to enjoy the occasional margarita.
