Our Team

Brent Zahradnik

Brent started AMZ Pathfinder in the summer of 2015 – the early days of Amazon advertising when you could quickly see incredible ROI advertising just about anything. 

Brent realized that he had the power to help so many businesses selling on Amazon harness this growing PPC platform to grow their revenue and exposure.

Since then, he’s witnessed firsthand each and every update that Amazon has implemented and throughout the years, updated the tactics and processes AMZ Pathfinder uses to adapt to the ever-evolving ecosystem.
