Ari Mendelow, born in Israel and raised in West Orange, New Jersey, has been a creative, technical, and passionate worker since his early days of app development and design in high school and college. Upon his graduation from Rutgers University with a degree in Industrial Engineering and Economics, Ari promptly threw himself into the world of entrepreneurship, his venture Sulis successfully placing 7th in the Hult Prize Competition for Social Entrepreneurship out of over 40,000 international teams. After successfully spending time in India, England, Wales and several other countries developing the product with his team, Mendelow worked for a year for Cognizant, one of the largest Consulting / IT firms in the world, before deciding to return to the creative, small business world. His natural creative and passionate disposition, along with his fervent work ethic, made him a perfect match for AME. Ari came on board as Director of Web Development, immediately dedicating his time to creating a brand new website that provides a user-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and fun experience for customers. Web development and design are not Ari’s only passions: Hiking, kayaking, brewery hopping, and traveling are just a few other interests that Ari pursues in his free time.
