This week I share an insightful conversation I had with Jenn Cordz. Jenn is the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Avnir.

Jenn is leading the digital transformation of two decades of professional services methodology into a Generative AI-enabled platform to digitize strategic relationship identification, nurturing, development, and capitalization.

She currently serves on two non-profit Boards, lending her expertise to various environmental and sustainability initiatives. Jenn is also the Captain of the United States Women's Fly Fishing team.
