Based out of San Luis Obispo, CA, iKizmet grew out of the passion for helping Health, Wellness and Fitness Businesses. As a founding member at MINDBODY, our CEO and Founder was fortunate to participate in the explosive growth of our industry and get real insight into the operational and technology challenges owners face with running successful studios, gyms, or schools.
iKizmet is derived from the word kismet, a Turkish word meaning “meant to be” or fate. At iKizmet, we believe it is our unavoidable destiny to help small business owners in the industry we service, to be successful, thrive and grow to achieve their personal destiny.
Founder and CEO
Andres was founding member at MINDBODY helping build a world class sales organization, become a nationwide speaker at industry tradeshows, help create MINDBODY University as a founding lecturer, and was given the creative freedom to build a business development group whose many successes included discovering and integrating technology partners that are recognized in our industries as creating innovative products that are delightful to use.
Rich’s propensity for managing projects and finding solutions brought him to iKizmet to focus on the day to day business operations. The time he spent in residential real estate has made him a strong client advocate with a passion for getting things done right. His operational and teamwork strengths can be attributed to his years spent in marketing communications & multimedia for the healthcare industry. When he is not behind the scenes “making things happen” you will find him on family hikes, golfing with friends or just enjoying the outdoors in the beautiful landscape of the Colorado.
