Experience in tech, data and finance business process.  


Discover who is behind the product, and Zii brand.

sunny day in 2018,  well-lit room, a clean whiteboard, very smart and experienced people got together to solve the problems large organizations have when it comes to managing the Travel, Expense and Sustainability (T&E&S) category.   With more than 100 years of experience at the table, the goal was to develop the most intuitive (we call it grandma-friendly) fintech platform for T&E&S management on the market.   Yes, we wanted to build awesome technology and with a couple of hundred years of experience around the table, we decided on not just what but how and with whom. 

How we do things is probably as important as what we build. The culture we nurture depends on diversity in the workplace, open communication and a humbling appreciation and respect for one another.  A philosophy that our CEO and Founder, Monique Mardinian has encouraged since Day 1. Because of the inclusive workplace, Zii is nested in the hands of more than 40 dedicated employees, who day-in bring their “A” game to the table. Amongst these people, we find our leadership team.

With the onboarding of new clients, who are raving about Zii, we now feel is the right time to reveal Zii’s decision-makers. We are excited and proud to introduce to you, the members of our leadership team.
