Alex Zekoff is the Co-Founder and CEO of Thoughtful, an automation-as-a-service platform whose mission is to enable all organizations to free their workforce of time-consuming processes.
Thoughtful creates and manages automated digital workers that supercharge the operations of their customers across all major business functions including revenue cycle, finance, legal, HR, IT, and beyond. As CEO, his responsibilities include leading the revenue team, helping build a superior go-to-market and growth engine.
Alex started his career in technology consulting at a large multinational aerospace and defense company in 2009. He helped the company develop their enterprise resource planning (ERP) application and trained users to operate the software. Ten years later, he came back to that same company and helped build software bots (digital workers) to operate the ERPprogram.
It was from this experience that he saw the full potential of enabling technologies like robotic process automation (RPA), cloud, optical character recognition (OCR), natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence (AI).These insights led to the inception of Thoughtful.
Alex received his MBA in Entrepreneurship, Design Thinking from the University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business and his BS in Finance, Decision Science from Miami University (OH). Alex currently lives in Chicago and enjoys photography, traveling and DJing in his freetime.
