(virtual business card)

Alex Todd is Founder and Chief Executive of Trust Enablement Incorporated, developer of a management innovation that helps organizations achieve their goals by optimizing the trust of their stakeholders.

Alex Todd is a serial innovator and entrepreneur. He is a thought leader in rebuilding trust for business and architect of the Trust Enablement® Framework, a universal scheme for diagnosing and designing conditions for trust. He used this Framework to derive the Governance Lifecycle Model for identifying corporate governance styles and the Aspirational Corporate Governance Framework for organizational sustainability. Trust Enablement® is founded on information theory and was inspired by his work with public key infrastructure (PKI) at IBM. It has also helped him share valuable insights about various areas of business that include leadership, collaboration, sales and marketing, public relations, online social networks, electronic commerce, supply chain management, risk management, and business strategy. His work has been published by McMaster University, Conference Board of Canada, Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA), Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS), and John Wiley & Sons.

Alex's methods for engineering trust are derived from his initial thought-leadership work as a Senior Trust Consultant with IBM's Global PKI Center of Competency, where he helped to define future services required to support IBM's "Business On Demand" strategy. Alex Todd has delivered trust-consulting engagements to "very satisfied" regional and multinational clients in the financial services, distribution, transportation, high technology and public sectors, in Europe, North America and South America.

Before joining IBM, Alex held an executive position with a publicly traded company that developed a patented new PKI technology for securing electronic messages. BYTE Magazine recognized him as an innovator and entrepreneur for developing natural-language personal information management (PIM) software before Microsoft Windows was a standard. He successfully sold these products online before the World Wide Web was invented. His international career has taken him worldwide including to the United States, the United Kingdom, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Barbados and Israel.

Alex Todd holds a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from the University of Toronto and is an IBM Certified Consultant, distinguished by one IBM Global Services Principal as "a trusted advisor to clients" with "a passion to change the world".
