Welcoming New Member Salah Zalatimo

Umbrex is pleased to welcome Salah Zalatimo with Ooblek Partners. Salah has over 20 years of experience driving transformative change through organizations – large and small. Most recently, Salah was the cofounder and CEO of Voice, a web3 social media company once hailed as the ‘Facebook-killer’. Prior to Voice, Salah served as the global chief digital officer at Forbes, leading a successful digital transformation at the media company. During that time, Salah established and led an internal blockchain taskforce that enabled Forbes to become the first major publisher to commit to publishing content on a blockchain and incorporate a cryptocurrency paywall on the site.

Salah joined Forbes in 2015 after the company acquired his startup Camerama, a cloud-based photo sharing application. He had founded the company after specializing in media for management consulting firm McKinsey & Company. His executive and advisory experience also includes Bertelsmann, Sony Music and The New York Times. Salah has a BA and an MBA from Columbia University. An amateur boxer, Salah is an advisory board member for the Haymakers For Hope charity boxing organization.
