Whitney Zavilla

Executive Assistant

I work directly with First Round managing partner Josh Kopelman as his executive assistant. In addition to scheduling for and supporting Josh in all of his activities, I also organize and manage events hosted in Philadelphia.

Prior to joining First Round, I worked in finance in New York City as an Executive Administrator and Research Assistant for H Partners Management. Before relocating to New York City, I lived in Washington D.C., where I worked as a Business Development Manager for a software company. I earned my BA from Virginia Tech in Communications, with a double concentration in event planning and broadcasting — both of which have served me well in my work.

I enjoy traveling and recreational sports, and am glad to be back home in the Philadelphia area to support my Eagles and Flyers.
