José Andrés & Jenny Fleiss

Twice named to Time’s “100 Most Influential People” list, José Andrés is an internationally-recognized culinary innovator, New York Times best-selling author, educator, humanitarian, and chef and owner of ThinkFoodGroup. In 2010, Andrés founded World Central Kitchen, a non-profit specializing in delivering food relief in the wake of natural and humanitarian disasters. A naturalized U.S. citizen originally from Spain, Andrés has been a tireless advocate for immigration reform.

Jenny Fleiss founded two digitally native businesses from scratch: Rent the Runway and Jetblack—the first portfolio company within Walmart’s technology incubator, disrupting traditional ecommerce with a personal shopping service over text message and voice. Jenny's recognitions include Inc. Magazine’s “30 Under 30”; Fortune Magazine’s “40 Under 40” and “Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs”; and Fast Company’s “Most Influential Women in Technology.”

What is WebOps?

WebOps (website operations) empowers web teams to create experiences that excel in the digital economy.

Through automation and cloud-based collaboration, WebOps teams have the freedom to update their websites on the fly, actively responding to customer needs and market conditions with amazing digital experiences. WebOps ushers in a new era of website management, where websites are more than branding tools and content management platforms — they're real growth drivers.
