Lazar Gintchin

Fractional CTO helping tech companies scale and launch products

As a strategic CTO and Technology Leader, I leverage over 22 years of technology industry experience, 8 product launches, and expertise in various areas including product vision and roadmap execution, strategic alignment and planning, product launch, startup and growth stage companies, cloud platforms and technologies, software architecture and design, budgeting, leadership and people management, and M&A and due diligence. I am passionate about bringing people together and creating alignment and visibility to anything we work on. That way we decrease the chance for misalignment, which I have found to be detrimental to the success of any company.
