CEO & Co-founder
Peter loves technologies that enable world-changing stories to be shared. In 2008, he joined forces with Adam Somlai-Fischer and Péter Halácsy, an architect and an innovator, to create a more memorable and engaging way for people to share stories. Today, their creation is known as “Prezi”.
Before co-founding Prezi, Peter was already active in the information-sharing realm. In Sweden, he founded omvard.se a company that aggregates data on treatment outcomes for hospital patients. Soon after, he developed the world’s first mobile newsreader so people could follow TED Talks from their mobile devices.
In his spare time, Peter enjoys prodding fellow colleagues to join him at Bikram Yoga classes. Additionally, he’s the go-to translator at Prezi since he speaks Japanese, Swedish, Hungarian, and English, which also awards him the coveted title of “polyglot”.
Principal Artist & Co-founder
Adam, an architect and artist, a maker and facilitator, spent the last decade creating innovative technologies and artistic projects which facilitate the creativity of others - ranging from mixed reality interfaces and DIY smarthomes to institutions and workshop methods for innovation.
His (collaborative) works have been exhibited at Venice Biennale and dozens of festivals globally and published in leading magazines and blogs. In 2007, he co-founded Kitchen Budapest media lab with Peter Halacsy. He wrote his first prezi in 2001. In his own words:
“I hand-coded my first prezi in 2001, just as a personal tool to develop my ideas by seeing relations, the big picture, and then focusing the attention of the audience by creating a visual journey.
I’ve made about 2,500 prezis by now, and after each and every one I think about how to use this language better and how to build this knowledge into the product so that we can help everyone make better prezis.
In a prezi, there is always context, there are no slides hiding one idea from the other, and the visual journey is always there to help us orient ourselves in the cloud of information.”
Chief Operating Officer

Prior to Prezi, he was SVP of product management, customer acquisition and success at Fiberlink (acquired by IBM) where he helped build the company’s industry-leading mobile enterprise cloud platform. When he’s not pursuing Prezi’s mission to help millions of people communicate better, you’re likely to find him in his back yard with his children and his home improvement list.
Chief Product Officer
Jim is based in Budapest and responsible for all product activities at Prezi, including engineering, product management, UX research and design.

Vice President of Marketing
As our VP of Marketing, Nadjya loves building all-star teams with the power to drive global market leadership. One of the things she values most at Prezi is the ability to combine technology, data, and innovative storytelling to develop an authentic brand.

She holds an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, with an undergrad degree in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) from the University of Michigan.
Nadjya believes the secret to staying motivated is having a list of dreams that’s always a little bit longer than her list of achievements.
On weekends, you might find her riding her bike, tempting her neighbors with the smell of home-baked biscotti, searching for antiques that have their own fascinating stories, or cheering pool-side for her 10-year-old swimmer.

Vice President of Sales
As the VP of Global Sales, Greg and his merry band of sales professionals are changing the way businesses tell their stories. Greg is on a mission to bring back the lost art of storytelling to the sales profession and finally put an end to the senseless use of slides, text, and bullet points that have plagued meetings for far too long.
Greg loves the underdog story. His prior experience primarily comes from building and leading sales teams from early stage to high growth at companies such as Salesforce.com, InsideView, Zendesk, and most recently Xero.
With a very active family of four, plus a deaf dog named Bacon, Greg has no spare time.

When Karen is not spearheading initiatives that help businesses create visually captivating presentations you may find her sipping on a latte in a sunny San Francisco cafe.
