When Front began in 2020, it started with a simple premise: provide every investor – no matter how small – with the opportunity and tools to capitalize on the market. With the retail investor wave taking over Wall Street, CEO Bam Azizi made it his mission to deliver a level playing field for all.
Since the beginning, Front has assembled a team of experts and top talents who share that vision. With the most recent additions to the Front team, the company is ready to take its FinTech rocket to the moon!
With that being said, Front is thrilled to introduce Dara Rahimzadeh and Garrett Link to the team that intends to take the industry to the next level. Here is some background on the newest members of the Front Executive Team.
Dara Rahimzadeh, VP of Partnerships
Dara has spent his entire career in the technology industry, with his experience spanning high-growth startups in the enterprise software space and venture capital. During his tenure at TeleSign and Nexmo, both companies enjoyed successful exits. Dara currently serves as Senior Advisor at K50 Ventures and holds an MBA from Babson College.
When asked why Dara decided to join the Front team, he stated:
“I believe that with the right set of tools, anyone can take control of their financial well-being. Front’s ideal, modern stack of market data, broker integrations, and a seamless user experience makes that goal more accessible and affordable than ever before”.
Dara added, “Front’s suite of tools puts it at the forefront of fintech infrastructure by enabling existing fintechs to give their user base a richer and more engaging experience. I look forward to making this a reality for millions of people with the fantastic team at Front.”
Garrett Link, VP of Product
Garrett has dabbled in multiple industries throughout his career, starting in the gaming industry in the early 2000s and moving through the tech world at record speed. Garrett has worked with both start-ups and publicly traded companies, having led multiple product initiatives which included pitching, securing funding, and bringing to market the social games business at GameHouse/RealNetworks, as well as a social language learning platform with teachers, students, lessons, and more at Livemocha.
We spoke to Garrett and asked him why he chose to join Front. According to Garrett:
“My epic calling in life is to help people. At Front I get the opportunity to do that by helping people to become better at understanding money and their decisions as it relates to money. I want to make investing simpler. I want to help people know if they should invest, and, if the answer is “yes,” what to invest in. This is what the big companies know that the little people don’t, and I’m here to help Front with that.”
Front is so excited to welcome Garrett and Dara, two veteran disruptors of the status quo, to our team. We’re certain that their expertise will drive our mission forward and allow us to achieve our goal of helping everyday people become better investors.
