Zarina Stanford

Traveller & CMO Fellow

With a career spanning sales and marketing leadership roles in global blue chip tech firms including IBM and SAP, Zarina is CMO of Syniti, a Boston-based data management software and services company born to solve complex data challenges for global enterprises.

A Marketing Academy CMO Fellow, Zarina is an advocate of purpose-driven businesses and a champion for diversity and inclusion. She serves on the Board of the BD Foundation, a non-profit organization for inclusion empowerment, and is a frequent industry speaker on marketing, business, and inclusion topics.

On the personal front, Zarina describes herself as a proud daughter, mother, and sister. When not busy travelling or mentoring, she can be found pursuing her other true love: Ikebana (that’s Japanese flower arrangement for the uninitiated) and hiking in nature. In between all of this, there’s also the small matter of writing her magnum opus: #DareToGrow. It’s a busy life.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
