Veda Team

Parvez Saleh

Managing Director

Parvez has worked with Not for Profits for the past 20 years. During that time, it became clear to him that no matter how large or small an organisation is, the technical aspirations are similar for everyone.
A geek at heart and having worked on web facing portals throughout his career, in 2006 he discovered CiviCRM whilst working for a fundraising charity. He quickly realised with the right technological base a true Not for Profit centric platform was available.
In 2007 he was responsible for establishing NFP Services and then in 2012 Parvez founded Veda Consulting with the sole mission of being able to invest 25% of it’s time on a pro bono basis, thus giving back to the open source world. He believes that it’s only through working as a collective we can ensure everyone has access to all the tools they need in order to maximise their reach, every £1 a supporter donates should go as far as possible.
Other than that, in case you’d like to buy him lunch one day, it’s worth noting he is a vegetarian with a twist (no eggs, onions, garlic or mushrooms please!)
