General Info

About

Zachary Johnson is the CEO and co-founder of Syndio, an enterprise people analytics company based in Chicago. Syndio helps large organizations use network science to systematically measure intangible aspects of employee-to-employee communication like trust, information sharing, and collaboration and to use this knowledge to dramatically improve talent management, innovation, and change initiatives. As CEO, Zack has bootstrapped the growth of Syndio from a one-man shop to a 14-person team, with greater than 100 percent year-over-year revenue growth for the past three years. Syndio customers include world-class organizations like Procter & Gamble, Mars, and Exelon. For this work, Zack and Syndio have been prominently featured in Inc., The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications. Prior to Syndio, Zack applied network science to help pop and hip-hop artists rapidly grow entrenched fan bases. Several of these campaigns were successful, with two of the most prominent artists being Mike Posner (Island Records) and Big Sean (Roc Nation). Zack was instrumental in the early rise of both artists. Zack’s interest in the field of networks began while studying communications at Northwestern University. There, he held a research position at the Science of Networks in Communities (SONIC) research group. Zack remains very connected to his alma mater, and he regularly guest teaches there.
