Turning your big ideas into actual products takes a team approach. Gembah is your team of product development experts, project management gurus, and innovation enablers ready to help you create a winning product.
OUR CORE TEAM
Our leadership team came together in Austin, Texas, each with their own specialties and experience. Together, we bring a mix of overseas manufacturing experience, logistics expertise, and analytical acuity to the table. Your table. We are united by our mission to support product innovation by democratizing the design and manufacturing process.
Co-Founder and CEO
Henrik not only co-founded and leads Gembah, but he is a former CEO and co-founder of several venture startups, most recently Boundless, a $100M promotional products company and platform. When he isn’t focusing on building Gembah, you can find him trail running or eating Mexican food.
Co-Founder, President, COO
Zack is a seasoned strategy and operational executive, bringing a wealth of experience from previous roles at Instacart and Dropoff. There isn’t a challenge he won’t take on. Ask him what he loves most about Gembah and he’ll tell you it’s solving complex problems for clients and scaling operations.
Steven is an entrepreneur/innovator extraordinaire. He is CEO and Co-Founder of Shark Tank winner, PrideBites, securing a deal with not one but two Sharks. Steven serves as a Gembah advisor, is well-versed in overseas marketing, what it takes to bring an idea to life, and anything to do with dogs.
DESIGNERS & ENGINEERS
Our product designers and engineers encompass a range of expertise of their own, with an incredible global network of professionals with every type of product background to ensure every client gets a designer with specific product knowledge. There’s nothing our team can’t design, build or improve.
Director of Design
Chris knows design better than anyone we know. As founder of Blipic and owner of Trekr Design, he brings unprecedented industrial design and product engineering experience to Gembah and our clients. In his spare time, he loves riding big motorcycles and being outdoors any chance he gets.
Lead Software Engineer
Jared is a jack of all trades. As a former CTO, senior engineer and lawyer, he has held key positions at Realtor.com, Dropoff, and AGEX. From strategic planning and software development to software architecture and corporate law, Jared knows it all. His experience is only surpassed by his impressive beard.
A World-Wide Network
Our designers aren’t the only ones with a global network of leading experts at their fingertips. Our relationships with factories across the world ensure we can source the ideal factory for every job, negotiating the best price and turnaround times for our clients as possible. Our field staff monitors and regularly visits the factories to test client products and ensure the highest quality standards.
