Ronen Shahkoohi is one of the youngest members of Zola Media, but at the same time is also one of the oldest team members. Starting off as a summer intern in his high school days and part time during his college career, has lead him to learn all the ins and outs of the company. He has fallen into almost every seat in Zola Media, from starting up the SEO department in Zola Creative to Quality Assurance in Zola Suite. Right now, Ronen is currently holding the title of “VP Finances” but also continues to hold the responsibility of IT and Systems. His position was a result of his passion for technology along with his Accounting BA.
