Faizan Buzdar is the CEO and founder of Convo, a provider of cloud-based digital collaboration workspaces for companies, and their teams, where the visual conversations around multiple files, content and images are critical to advancing business. Convo eliminates the need to jump in and out of emails and applications and accelerates how teams share information, collaborate on work and make decisions.
Faizan is a hands-on executive, entrepreneur and product leader who possesses a unique combination of skills in technology, engineering and interactive design. What has driven Faizan in his years of product development is the application of a human-driven approach to product design: great products are designed for people, by people.
Faizan is known for leading cross-functional teams across multiple locations around the globe. This experience has shaped how he developed Convo: to fully support a fast-moving, agile, globally-dispersed business beyond any product or service currently available. “You have to go broad and deep to understand what customers need, you have to continuously get and apply that customer insight, and you have to discover and liberate individual talent and collective, cross-functional teams’ creativity to create unique solutions that drive business success.”
Prior to Convo, Faizan held senior product roles at Ultimus and Elixir Technologies.
Faizan holds several patents and has designed and taught workshops and classes on human interaction and object oriented programming to undergraduate and graduate students in Pakistan at the National University of Science & Technology (NUST), IQRA University and the National University of Computer & Emerging Sciences (FAST).
