Cali Friedland promoted to CEO, Afiniti, effective January 4, 2019.

Afiniti announces that Zia Chishti, CEO of Afiniti, has stepped down from his position to pursue other opportunities within the social impact sector.

Curtis Palmer, former Chief Digital Officer of HSS Enterprises and former President of Maiden Lane at Gilt, will assume the role of interim CEO effective January 4, 2019 and will work with the Board to select a permanent CEO. Additionally, Curtis Palmer will be leading Afiniti’s efforts to grow the business and expand operations globally.

Curtis Palmer, Executive Chairman of HSS Enterprise, said, “It’s an honor to step in at such an exciting and groundbreaking time for Afiniti. Since its inception, Afiniti has developed a reputation for delivering high quality solutions to a wide variety of customers. Our entire team will continue the successful trajectory that Afiniti has paved for itself in the marketplace. I’m excited to lead this well-run business in its continued success as we expand to meet the changing needs of our customers.”

The Board of Directors and Afiniti’s employees would like to thank Zia for his leadership in the formation and development of the company, particularly in the five years since its launch, and in achieving considerable achievements in the marketplace. Afiniti’s growth plans and new projects add to its momentum as a truly innovative provider of end-to-end services that scale. Zia will focus his efforts on his other interests, including supporting the growth of His Orangutan Foundation and mentoring other entrepreneurs in the area of social impact.
