Montgomery joins the Advisory Board to support and guide ENODO’s mission to “solve” the complex social challenges that permeate all business operations throughout our interconnected world. Her fellow Advisory Board teammates include:

  • James D. Filpi, Senior Counsel with the Commercial Law Development Program in the Office of the General Counsel of the United States Department of Commerce;
