ZINFI Leadership

Sugata Sanyal

Founder & Strategy

Over the past three decades Sugata has worked in three large global organizations – Honeywell, Philips and Dell SonicWALL – learning how to put together global teams that can work together to help customers win, create multiple opportunities and do amazing things. Sugata founded ZINFI with the mission of solving the entire challenge associated with marketing and selling directly and indirectly (via channel). Over the past several years, Sugata has led the ZINFI team to build a highly customer-focused global organization that constantly innovates and asks how can we do it better and deliver more for less.

Mike Chantigian

Business Development, Americas & EMEA

Mike inspires a team who identifies net-new business prospects through a best-in-class Demand Generation platform. He considers his role very satisfying when the development strategy pays off and where results can be clearly seen, but recognizes the constant challenge and requires keeping a number of skills honed and sharpened like good business sense, financial planning, marketing skills, strategy development and implementation. He realizes the ultimate aim of our business development team is to improve our organization’s profitability by generating and managing new prospects.
