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.”
As our president, Jim is in charge of product and go-to-market operations at Prezi. Since earning his engineering and management degrees from MIT and Stanford, he’s built his career around helping users and communities adopt new internet and mobile technologies. He’s passionate about customer-centric business models and making new technology fun by creating innovative user experiences.
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 of helping our users connect with their audiences, he’s likely in his backyard with his children and his home improvement list.
Tyler has a passion for building and leading teams that create visual communications software.
Educated as an architectural engineer at the University of Colorado, he got his start developing CAD software at Lithonia Lighting. Making the switch to engineering management at SketchUp, he lead his team through acquisitions by Google and eventually Trimble. As Engineering Director at Trimble, Tyler oversaw a rapid expansion of products on desktop, mobile, Web, and AR platforms. In 2015, he completed the Stanford Executive Program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Tyler joined Prezi as VP of Engineering in 2017.
When not creating software or spending time with his family, Tyler prefers to view the world from a ski slope, the side of a river, or the seat of his bicycle.
Vice President of People & Development
As our VP of People & Development, Kata enjoys being in charge of all HR-related activities at Prezi and leading a global team of people operations experts, business partners, and recruiters.
Kata started at Prezi as an intern in 2012, growing into her leadership role as the company blossomed from a staff of 40 to over 300 employees worldwide.
Prior to joining our team, she gained valuable experience in recruitment and other people activities at various human resources agencies, and it was after finishing her studies as a Work and Organisational Psychologist that she got her opportunity with Prezi.
When she’s not busy making Prezi a terrific place to work, Kata loves being active by dancing, traveling, and lifting weights.
Senior Vice President of Marketing
As Senior Vice President of Marketing, Stefanie is responsible for all aspects of Prezi’s marketing—including product marketing, customer acquisition, demand generation, branding, lifecycle marketing, and content marketing.
She especially loves working with her team to create an authentic brand that reinvents how people share knowledge, tell stories, and inspire their audiences to act.
Prior to Prezi, she helped build great brands including Popchips, Revlon, and Dannon.
Stefanie has a Masters in Business Administration from the Tuck School at Dartmouth College and an undergraduate degree from Duke University.
When she isn’t helping her team spread the word about Prezi, you can find her at home with her family, playing board games or trying a new baking recipe.
SVP, Customer Experience and Operations
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.
