VP Business development
Tim Wood joined Trust Exchange team to direct business development and general operations after a twenty-one-year career in the U.S. Navy SEALs and six years in Operational Risk Management consulting. In this time, he has operated, trained, and built relationships in thirty different cultures spanning every inhabited continent. This experience led to the development of his two guiding principles: First, never assume that you’re the smartest person in the room. Second, a good plan executed well is always better than a perfect plan executed poorly. Tim completed his MBA at St. Joseph’s Haub School of Business in 2007, where he developed a strong interest in Decision and System Sciences. Tim is also a partner in a private mentoring group that works with athletes entering professional sports, focusing on smart financial decisions and perception management.
