Leaders have three fundamental responsibilities: they craft a vision; they build alignment and they champion execution. Jill Klein is a master at championing all of these responsibilities that allow strategies to turn into reality. In my many years of working with Jill, I see a truly great talent driven by the passion to see her clients succeed.

Her ability to envision a better future is powered by her deep understanding how digital technology can enable disruption in organizational change and transformation.
