AUSTIN, Texas, August 11, 2016 – Vyze, a leader in cloud-based financing technology for retailers and manufacturer brands, announced today that Azim Panjwani has joined the company as the vice president of product management. Panjwani brings over a decade of product leadership experience to Vyze. His keen understanding of product design, strategy and management will enable Vyze to continue to build financing solutions that unlock the potential of businesses and their consumers.
“Every customer should be able to have a quick, easy and dignified experience when getting credit, so Vyze sought to bring in an executive with financial, product and user experience skills to help drive this mission home,” said CEO Keith Nealon.
“Azim is the perfect fit. His expertise and passion around the customer experience and his creative mindset will all be imperative as we continue to innovate,” continued Nealon. “He not only knows how to identify big-picture opportunities in the industries he serves, but also how to act on those opportunities and make them a reality.”
Panjwani is the latest key addition to the Vyze executive team, with Keith Nealon and John Whitmarsh both joining earlier this year as CEO and CFO, respectively. Prior to joining Vyze, Panjwani was a co-founder and chief product and marketing officer at WheelSpoke, a B2B purchasing and commerce platform for small business owners. He was also a senior Quickbooks product leader at Intuit and has held various consultancy positions over the course of his career, including at McKinsey & Company.
Panjwani’s addition comes on the heels of Vyze’s most recent funding round in June. His product experience will enable Vyze to bring to market its next generation financing center and ecommerce products to market.
“In any organization, having the products that help propel your and your customers’ overall message is the key to success, and Vyze is no exception,” said Panjwani. “I’m thrilled to join the Vyze leadership team and excited by the opportunity to raise the bar and create solutions that help our customers make their products accessible.”
