Pouya Shahbodaghi joined Barr in 2020 as the Enterprise Applications Manager, with the primary focus to lead and build the Salesforce platform for internal staff and grantees. He spends much of his time looking at the existing workflows and processes and thinking about ways to make recommendations to improve the experience for all users in the grantmaking lifecycle. He is a holder of multiple certifications, with the ever-present interest to add more.
Before joining Barr, Pouya worked at Year Up, a national workforce development nonprofit as a Salesforce Solution Architect, and also at WGBH as a Sales Operations Supervisor, where he first fell in love with Salesforce and its virtual LEGO-like capabilities.
Pouya is a graduate of Boston University and resides in Dorchester. When not spending time reading over release notes and other ways to innovate with Salesforce, Pouya is an avid fan of the NBA. He also enjoys playing poker, questioning the universe, and sampling beers from breweries near and far.
