ZIVELO™, a public computing technology company that designs, manufactures and distributes self-service kiosk and digital signage systems, announces the addition of Phil Vaney as chief operating officer. Vaney joins the team operating out of the company’s new 13,000-square-foot operations headquarters in the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall.
“The success and growth of ZIVELO has allowed us the opportunity to add talented leaders like Phil to our team,” said Ziver Birg, founder and CEO of ZIVELO. “Phil has the natural ability to lead and inspire, and we are excited to have his guidance as the company enters a new chapter with the relocation of our operations headquarters.”
Vaney brings more than 15 years of leadership experience to ZIVELO. An accomplished technology operations and manufacturing executive, Vaney has a proven track record of growing businesses by leading product development, manufacturing and supply chain strategies. He most recently served as Director of Operations for DAP Technologies (a division of Roper Industries) where he managed operations, manufacturing and the global supply chain production of rugged computing products. Prior responsibilities include roles as operations manager of Intel’s Home Products Group and global start-up Manager for Intel’s Flip Chip Assembly/Test Factory start-up effort, as well as numerous senior leadership positions in both start-up environments and Fortune 500 environments.
“Over the past few weeks I’ve had the unique opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the company, Ziver and the team, and it is clear ZIVELO is the perfect fit,” said Vaney. “I am inspired and excited by the company’s bright future and am honored to be part of its strategic vision.”
Since opening in 2008, ZIVELO has quickly skyrocketed to become one of the largest self-service kiosk manufacturers in the world with a client base that has grown to serve companies in more than 40 market sectors. In March 2014, the company looked to establish its operations headquarters in a city that would allow for continued growth and attract talented employees. ZIVELO decisively chose a nontraditional space located in the Fashion Square Mall in downtown Scottsdale. The hometown of Birg and a growing hub for entrepreneurial and technology companies, Scottsdale was a natural fit for the company. The new office will serve as the company’s operations headquarters, design studio and showroom space, and will be open to the public by appointment only.
ZIVELO’s self-service kiosk and digital signage systems solutions have been utilized by customers across multiple industries including retail, healthcare and hospitality for clients ranging from the Fortune 100 to nearly every branch of the US government, including Coca-Cola, Cisco, Hilton, CVS, NASA and the US Army. Driven by simplicity, ZIVELO offers an unparalleled sleek design coupled with endless functionality capabilities that pioneers the use of aluminum and focuses on user-friendly interfaces.
In 2013, ZIVELO was ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. on the Inc. 500 | 5000 list and recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the top three fastest growing computer hardware companies. In 2012, the company was honored as one of the six fastest growing tech companies by Forbes.
ZIVELO was founded in Marion, Ind., where the company still hand-crafts each ZIVELO terminal in a 250,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The company also has boutique and showroom locations in Los Angeles, Denver and Philadelphia, and more than 100 certified resellers and distributors globally.
