Trzepacz will lead the global HR strategy and build the SymphonyAI culture, critical components of SymphonyAI’s evolution as an integrated enterprise AI company delivering solutions to multiple sectors, including retail, CPG, financial crime prevention, manufacturing, media, federal, and IT/enterprise service management.

“The talented people of SymphonyAI are what make us and our customers successful. Our AI solutions deliver great value to organizations as diverse as leading retailers, media companies, banks, industrial manufacturers, and federal agencies, and this is directly due to the skills and dedication of our employees,” said SymphonyAI CEO Sanjay Dhawan. “Jennifer’s track record and leadership attracting and building cohesive teams in high-growth technology companies is a foundation that will help us continue to scale.”

Offering industry-specific solutions that deliver rapid results is how we win – and the teams that support the development of those results are central to continued growth and innovation,” said Trzepacz. “SymphonyAI’s vertical businesses have a remarkable ability to replicate success across industries. As we continue to scale, I look forward to uncovering and developing company-wide practices that support those teams in their ongoing achievements.”

Trzepacz joins SymphonyAI from Wildcat Venture Partners, where she was an HR operating partner for over twenty B2B and B2B2C technology portfolio companies. Previously, she was the executive vice president of HR and business operations at Rocket Fuel, Inc. (NASDAQ: FUEL), a role she took on following the AI-driven predictive marketing SaaS platform’s 2013 IPO. Before that, Trzepacz held talent leadership positions with Salesforce, Yahoo, and LivingSocial, among other fast-growing technology companies.
