Cody Lowry recently joined our team as the Director of Strategic Partnerships. In this role, Cody is developing relationships with strategic partners, new clients, and other collaborators that will grow J2’s vision, capacity and wide-ranging opportunities.

Before life at J2, Cody worked at Urban Engineers (a nationally-recognized, 450-person planning, design, and construction firm headquartered in Philadelphia). There he developed an award-winning marketing and communications program. Cody is an ideal fit for J2 because of his experience building relationships with new clients and alliances for Urban Engineers.

Cody also brings some cowboy-flare to our team. Born in Oklahoma ranch-country, Cody wields an incredibly accurate lasso. With a bachelor’s degree in Asian Studies and master’s degree in TESOL, he’s as comfortable speaking Japanese as he is discussing the nuances of English grammar. Cody came to Philly in 2004 and now lives in Fairmount with his family where he volunteers on the board of the Fairmount CDC. He was a four-time member of the U.S. rowing team and multiple-time national champion. The Schuylkill River is one of Cody’s favorite Philly places where he continues to row, inviting anyone willing to join him on the water.
