POUYAN SALEHI
CEO & Co-founder at PersistIQ

 

Pouyan is the CEO and cofounder of PersistIQ, the leading sales workflow software that combines the power of technology with the thoughtfulness of human interaction. Pouyan was frustrated with poorly designed and ineffective software he had to use when doing outbound sales, so he started PersistIQ to deliver what others couldn't. Pouyan believes that automation can go too far and that great technology should empower salespeople, not replace them. 

Prior to PersistIQ, Pouyan started several software companies and also spent three years at Apple working on iPhone operations. He grew up in Minnesota and is an avid snowboarder.
