Our Team

Jeff Knight, co-founder

In 1986, Jeff started his career in pharmaceutical sales, but quickly switched to surgical device sales.  In 1990, he moved into laser sales with Candela.   Recognizing an opportunity, in 1992 Jeff started his own distribution company which sold surgical and aesthetic lasers.  After building a sales team who was repeatedly #1 for Palomar products, he was brought in-house in 2003.  While at Palomar Medical, he served as National Sales Manager, VP of North American Sales, and VP of Sales and Marketing.  In 2013, he was recruited to be VP of Sales at Lumenis, Inc.   After stabilizing the salesforce and achieving double-digit growth, Jeff decided to return to his roots and co-found a new company with best-in-class products and services.

In addition to executive functions at Zarin, Jeff will focus on building another world-class sales team.

Lee Pannell, co-founder

In 1979, Lee started a 10-year career at IBM in management, sales, and marketing.   For the following 10 years, he moved to the surgical industry where he held various sales and marketing roles while working for companies such as U.S. Surgical and Cordis.   In 1999, Lee joined Coherent Medical, which later merged with ESC/Sharplan to form Lumenis.  He had successful sales and marketing roles, started the National Accounts program, and served as VP of Marketing and Product Development.  From 2007-2012, he “went global” by serving as Managing Director at Reliant Technologies and as Global VP of Sales, Marketing, and Customer Service in the laboratory science space.    In 2013, Lee was recruited back to Lumenis, as VP of Sales and Marketing, to drive adoption of one of his patented technologies.  In 2015, Lee decided to raise the bar and co-founded Zarin Medical to be the true gold standard medical technology company.

In addition to executive functions at Zarin, Lee will handle marketing and lead the search for new innovations.
