CHESTER, NEW JERSEY, January 14, 2013. Trust Across America, global leaders in information, standards and data, and Who's Who in trustworthy business has selected 2013's Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior. These people collectively represent a group that can genuinely transform the way organizations do business.
According to Barbara Kimmel, Executive Director, "The release of this third annual list coincides with the formal launch of Trust Across America's Campaign for Trust™, a two-year collaborative initiative to reverse the cycle of mistrust in business."
This year's recipients hail from around the globe and once again include leaders from the public and private sectors as well as authors, consultants, researchers and academics. Each recipient has made an extensive and positive contribution to building trust in business and many have already joined Trust Across America's Alliance of Trustworthy Business Experts (ATBE), a program that launched in the fourth quarter of 2012 and has already grown to over 150 global experts who are collaboratively joining forces to combat the world's trust crisis.
The full list of honorees can be found here.
Trust Across America publicized and received hundreds of nominations from around the world. The list was narrowed through an extensive vetting and independent judging process.
According to Barbara Kimmel, "The honorees are inspiring organizations to look more closely at their higher purpose...to create greater value for, and trust from, all of their stakeholders. They understand that trust is an asset that can leverage real business gains. We congratulate all of these leaders whose work is shining a spotlight on the importance of trust and providing a roadmap for others to follow."
