Andi Gutmans, the basketball player
Hey, Andi, listen to this. I walked into the breakfast hall at Amazon's Re:Invent in the Venetian, a cavernous room designed to seat 9,000, and sit down at a table with one person, Liran Kessel, founder and CEO of Rizotec in Israel. He's busy on his smartphone, but nevertheless, we strike up a conversation. I mention the last time I went to Israel, I had to cancel a meeting with Andi Gutmans due to passport problems. "Gutmans," he says in disbelief. He looked up your picture on his phone. "We played basketball together at the American School." He said you were a strong teammate.
