Zarah Tinholt, VP Corporate Development
Zarah leads Corporate Development and fundraising at iComply.

Zarah is a long-time entrepreneur and small business manager. She was formerly the president of a Western Canadian magazine company and was formerly an active housing spokesperson and housing policy advisor for the BC Green Party.
