Throughout her professional life, Cori has consistently demonstrated an exceptional ability to identify gaps in the market and develop cutting-edge solutions. She recognized the need for efficient, reliable, and data-driven approaches to managing underground infrastructure, which led her to co-found and build two proven, successful companies from the ground up.  Starting in 1996, she founded WinCan America, pioneering the CCTV inspection software market in the US.  In 2009, she co-founded ITpipes with Al Rossmeisl after realizing the need for a US-based pipe inspection software that was designed to work seamlessly with Esri and asset management software.  Under her leadership, ITpipes has grown to become the market leader, providing state-of-the-art inspection and data solutions to a wide range of clients, including municipalities, utilities, and engineering firms.
