The Cordes Foundation was created in 2006 by Ron and Marty Cordes following the sale of Ron’s company, AssetMark Investment Services, to Genworth Financial (NYSE:GNW).   Since stepping down as CEO of Genworth Wealth Management in 2009 and assuming a Co-Chairman role with the firm, Ron now devotes the bulk of his energies toward furthering the Key Initiatives of the Foundation.  Marty focuses her efforts on organizations the Foundation supports which promote human rights issues and the empowerment of women and girls.

Ron and Marty divide their time between the San Francisco bay area and New York City.  Their daughter Stephanie is a student at UC Santa Barbara.
