EMPLOYER SPOTLIGHT
Ze’ev Feig
CEO and Founder of Zensah

Zensah Compression is a Miami-based compression apparel company that seeks to create innovative products that wow and inspire every athlete to achieve their goals without limitation.

Ze’ev Feig, a Miami native, has hired many UM students as interns, and is pleased with his experience with the Toppel Career Center. “When you’re a young fast growing company, it’s hard to attract top talent. We look for candidates who are resourceful, looking to take risks, and fit into the culture at Zensah.” The Career Expo was an excellent opportunity to recruit talent and Mr. Feig looks for those students who have a passion for wanting to work for the company. With the number of start-ups in the market, he feels lucky to be a part of company with a focus on teamwork and whose employees have the power to make things happen.
