The Management Team
Parag Mamnani (Founder & CEO)
Parag has a passion for technology and possesses over 12 years of hands-on experience in design, development and marketing of business software. He has led cross-functional teams to deliver software solutions for thousands of eCommerce companies. His expertise in eCommerce combined with business savvy is the driving force behind the growth of Webgility.
Parag started his entrepreneurial journey while pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Arizona State University. As a partner at Gate6, he headed the technology team and helped the startup become one of the top 5 interactive agencies in Arizona. After Gate6, he joined Amazon.com as Product Management Lead and Evangelist for Amazon WebStore, where he launched the WebStore Developer program and managed some of the largest customer accounts, which generated millions in revenue for Amazon.
Parag believes that most business challenges can be solved by looking closely at data. He loves numbers and gets the same rush from creating spreadsheets as he does from finding the perfect hot sauce pairing for his lunch. He is also an amateur photographer and self-proclaimed pro golfer though his pictures and scorecard seem to indicate the contrary.
