Zita Cobb

President, Shorefast Foundation

Presented by : LES AFFAIRES

The daughter of a wild island off Canada’s East Coast, Zita Cobb left her home behind to conquer Silicon Valley as CFO of tech company JDSU. Fogo Island, however, was never far from her mind and she later returned to its wind-battered shores to nurse it back to economic health and foster what she calls cultural resiliency. A doer and a dreamer, Zita will share her inspiring story at C2MTL, lifting the veil on a local solution with global appeal.
