UW-River Falls

Angel Zimmerman, local entrepreneur and business leader, is the spring 2023 Innovator in Residence speaker at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

She most recently helped navigate the business growth and, after many years, the sale of local winery Belle Vinez. Zimmerman will speak on Wednesday, March 1, at 1 p.m. in the Riverview Ballroom in the University

Center, East, 501 Wild Rose Ave.  

The event is free and open to the public. Zimmerman describes herself as a “developer of people” and is active in a wide variety of civic organizations in the St. Croix Valley. As co-founder and COO of River Falls born Sajan, Inc., a language translation technology company, Zimmerman would go on to lead various operational areas of that business as it expanded across three continents, adding hundreds of employees.

During her tenure at Sajan, she was directly responsible for global delivery, compliance and global integration of strategic acquisitions. She retired from Sajan in 2015.

The UW-River Falls Innovator in Residence speaker events showcase individuals that exemplify the application of innovation in their organization.
