Dave Zinsman, Business Designer
Dave is a California native, growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area. In true Silicon Valley fashion, he was bit by the entrepreneurial bug at the tender age of seven, establishing a 'Garbage Pail Kids' trading card exchange. Throughout his teens and young adulthood he continued to develop his business savvy, eventually starting a few businesses centered around marketing, design and training.
In addition to his killer business chops, Dave is a passionate teacher. After high school, Dave joined the Marines where he served as a training instructor at Camp Pendleton. Serving in the Marines gave him a chance to see the world and interact with a wide variety of people. During his time in the Marines, Dave called Kenya, Japan and even the high seas his home! After his tour of duty, Dave went on to receive his MBA with a goal of helping companies make stronger and more relevant connections with people. He describes it this way:
The world is ready for the next renaissance. The world is ready for something better. We're ready to produce and consume smarter. Organizations that help companies make stronger and more relevant connections with people are crucial to bringing about the next renaissance.
That passion for people is what struck us most about him, and it can be seen in everything he does. For Dave, the future is full of possibilities and opportunities are everywhere. We're excited to bring Dave on as a Business Designer. In this role he'll help ZURB accomplish our mission of world domination by forging connections with new partners and helping our team work with companies to design for people.
At the center of helping companies make stronger connections with people is product design leadership. I came here because ZURB has consistently demonstrated world-class product design leadership.
