In less than a year, he has secured and led projects for numerous clients, including Procter & Gamble.

During this time he collaborated on research projects for NIH, the McArthur Foundation, and the Cornell Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC), as well as aided in the teaching of network science at the undergraduate, master's and Ph.D levels. Prior to founding Syndio Social, he applied network analysis methodologies to numerous independent music marketing projects. During that period he also co-founded another company: b:Social Creative Media, which later merged with Syndio Social. His most successful collaboration was with pop-star Mike Posner. In 2009, Zack advised the digital distribution of Posner's debut mixtape, "A Matter of Time," which has established him as a premiere up-and-coming artist. Posner's hit single "Cooler Than Me", at its peak, reached the tops of both Billboard and the iTunes music store.
