In 1998, Shane co-founded ZAAZ to advocate a different approach to web services—one that respected and delivered on the power of the individual and the promise of web technologies.
As CEO, Shane leads the company’s long-term strategic vision of working with leading financial service organizations, consumer brands, start-ups, non-profits and community-based organizations, helping each realize the potential of the Internet and its meaningful impact on their business.
Shane has over 11 years of strategic consulting, business development and advisory experience in web marketing, design, and customer relationship management. Prior to building ZAAZ, Shane was a partner in another web development firm where he oversaw strategy, service delivery, and business development. He has lead efforts to develop compelling online experiences for clients such as Converse, Starbucks, T-Mobile, Disney, Fox Television Network, Microsoft Corporation, National Geographic, PBS, Warner Brothers, Boeing and Washington Mutual.
At ZAAZ, Shane’s responsibilities range from setting the company’s overall strategy and communicating the ZAAZ brand and service offerings to working with clients, leading partnerships and fostering the internal culture of the company. Outside of ZAAZ, his advocacy for creating meaningful, effective visitor-centric digital strategies continues through media and speaking engagements. Shane has been a keynote speaker for major conferences and business associations, including CREDO, DMA and AIGA.
Shane graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Psychology. He lives with his family in Seattle, Washington.
