2009 - Neil Jhaveri

Neil Jhaveri may be new to Silicon Valley, but he is no stranger to entrepreneurial environments.  Prior to arriving in the San Francisco Bay Area, Neil founded a website development company, advised a chronic disease management software company, and helped corporate clients launch web applications as a software engineer at a consulting company.

Now, Neil leads Apple’s software engineering efforts in support of its email products, building new user interface features, visual effects, and animation. His goal – and his challenge – is to make Apple’s email systems even more appealing and easy to use.  After several years in back end development, Neil is excited to have a more varied role and to see his work immediately visible to the consumer.

In his spare time, Neil enjoys getting to know the Bay Area better through road biking and photography.  In addition to his Master’s, he holds two Bachelor’s degrees in Computer Science and Economics from the University of Maryland at College Park, and is considering adding an MBA to his arsenal at some point in the future.
