Mohammad Anwar

Mohammad Anwar

President and Co-founder

You won’t meet a leader like Mohammad anywhere else. He has all the instincts of a true visionary, coupled with that rare openness companies need to really thrive. But his real super power? It’s finding time. No matter how busy he gets, Mohammad somehow makes time to help people excel—whether they’re clients, team members, family and friends, or members of the community.

Taj has a background in Mechanical Engineering, with an additional focus on Interpersonal Effectiveness and Team Building. Outside of work, he enjoys turning anything into a competition.

Chris Pitre

Chris Pitre

Vice President

We think of Chris as less of a “VP” and more of a translator. Whatever industry our clients are in, whatever challenge they’re facing, Chris is able to speak their language and help our teams rally to create work that really works. He’s constantly thinking two steps ahead, investigating unknowns, and extracting truths. And fun fact: he’s also Beyoncé’s unofficial No. 1 fan.

Saif Khan

Saif Khan

Vice President of Technology

There isn’t a project Saif touches that isn’t complex—and he likes it that way. His solutions are rooted in proven technologies, but he’s always able to pivot as surprises come up. Over the past 11 years, Saif has grown from software engineer to project lead and all the way to VP. With his unique experience, Saif is able to anticipate needs and identify solutions like no one else.

Kristen Gerner

Kristen Gerner

Communications Director

Kristen is that rare breed of strategic thinker who is precise and process-driven—but never afraid to try something new. She researches. She experiments. And she’s always quick on her feet. One of her special talents is using her extensive knowledge to work efficiently across all teams inside Softway. Outside of work, she recharges and finds her own personal zen through yoga and meditation.

Matt Walsh

Matt Walsh

Creative Director

Matt is a leader, a visionary, and a teacher—all rolled into one. He quickly understands the nuance of client challenges, but is also able to find excitement there, too. Identifying that sense of opportunity is how he leads his teams to think beyond conventions, and to create work that’s as effective as it is aesthetically pleasing. At home, Matt spends time with family, preferably in his garden.

JJ Jose

JJ Jose

UX Director

Curious. Analytical. Observant. Those are just a few of JJ’s key traits—so it makes sense that he would find his place as a User Experience (UX) expert. JJ is able to take his everyday observations and apply them to the experience of any solution—whether that’s a website, an app, or an immersive experience. And when he’s not at work, JJ enjoys seeing live music as much as possible.

Jeff Ma

Jeff Ma

Project Management Director

Strategy-minded and analytical, Jeff excels at overseeing our project management teams. His guidance is what helps ensure client needs are understood, communicated, and met from project kickoff to close-out. Jeff has a background in gaming—and it’s easy to tell when you see him in action: he’s methodical in his problem-solving, but he always leaves some room for fun.

Frank Danna

Frank Danna

Associate Creative Director

Frank is an avid learner, diving deep into any subject that sparks his curiosity. He wants to understand not just how people tick, but what makes them feel. It’s that level of empathy that helps Frank guide his teams toward creative solutions that truly resonate with target audiences. When he’s not at Softway, Frank enjoys spending time with family and finding new podcasts to binge.

Nathan Smith

Nathan Smith

Associate Creative Director 

You never have to worry when Nathan’s on it. No matter the project, client, or challenge, Nathan always comes through with a solution. He uses his extensive graphic design and videography knowledge to guide his teams and create impactful work. Whether he’s at Softway or at home with his family, there’s a good chance you’ll find him surrounded by Legos.

Linsy Nguyen

Linsy Nguyen

Associate Creative Director

Linsy is our pint-sized creative powerhouse. Her standards are high, and she works closely with every team member to make sure expectations are met. She’s driven by an understanding of the client’s “why,” and uses that knowledge to guide our teams internally. While it’s easy for some creatives to get lost in the details, Linsy has a clear sense of every project’s North Star.

Taban Rashid

Taban Rashid

Financial Controller

Taban is part of the foundation that keeps Softway going. She handles all things finance, helping us make sure everything from accruals to payroll needs are handled with care. With over 15 years of experience and her Masters in Accounting & Finance—it’s clear we’re in very good hands.

Khalid Hakim

Khalid Hakim

Co-founder and Director of Administration

Khalid is one of the co-founders of Softway. In his everyday role, he makes the U.S. Softway office experience possible, offering direction and oversight on organizational infrastructure, administration, legal compliance, and vendor management. Also worth noting: he orders the snacks. We are all very nice to Khalid.
