Our team

Much like our enchanting products, our team is a unique concoction of people.
World-class scientists, engineers, artists, marketing and innovation experts work together to find new paths to people’s hearts and health. Get to know some of our key team members below.

Cecilia Ezaz-Nikpay

Company Manager

Always first to the table at product tastings. Economist and former management consultant with Enjoin Partners and McKinsey. Likes problem solving, visiting industrial sites and writing too long emails. Lights candles at random, like all Swedes.

Antonio Gavira

Operations and Finance 

Energetic, smiling, and Spanish; multi-tasks on a daily basis and reads minds as astutely as he reads excel sheets. Ready for the battle every time it is necessary, may it be expediting orders at the speed of light, or perform charades in the office. And he is a rock star by night – no kidding!

Fatemeh Farahani


Trained in fine arts, a creative artist who loves using her colour palette of natural ingredients and flavours to create beautiful, healthy products. There is no taste challenge that she cannot solve in a surprising way. Cooks heavenly Iranian dishes for her colleagues.

Pasquale Russo

Art Director

Artful architect and designer fuelled by espresso. An unbeatable eye for detail, and exceptional talent for herding cats, are his sharpest weapons. As an Italian master of all things, he makes the hardest work look breezy.

Dr. Khosro Ezaz-Nikpay


Biochemist from Harvard who went to McKinsey and spent much of his time on Innovation. One of the founders of Zendegii and full of ideas – mostly crazy but every now and then there is a good one. A fiery, persuasive lover of healthy eating and chocolate.

Peter Freedman


CEO of Global Consumer Goods Forum and a true gentleman. Passionate about finding healthy and environmentally sustainable solutions for consumers. Peter led McKinsey’s global consumer practice and brings a wealth of insight and practical guidance to everything we do.

Andrew McKinlay

Marketing Director

Branding expert with big and small (but always successful) brands in his portfolio. Extensive experience from Sachi&Sachi and Nokia. Charming explorer of new marketing ideas, as well as of new ways of living healthily. Takes rugby very seriously.

Ray Huntzinger

Zendegii Fitness

Serial entrepreneur, passionate about nutrition and fitness. Zendegii guru who knows the minutiae of manufacturing. Formerly senior manager in banking and in logistics who left to start two boutique gyms in Leamington Spa and Harrogate.
