NASHVILLE, TN (December 21, 2011) – The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, Inc. (NASBA), named Alfonzo Alexander as President of the NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT). Currently serving as NASBA’s Chief Relationship Officer, he will take over as President of NASBA’s ethics organization on January 1, 2012, upon the retirement of David A. Costello, CPA, NASBA’s current President and CEO, and the succession of Ken L. Bishop to President and CEO.

As part of the transition to President and CEO of NASBA, and CEO of the Center for the Public Trust, Bishop appointed Alexander to serve as President of the CPT to oversee its numerous programs and day-to-day operations. "Alfonzo will bring enhanced professional business acumen to the NASBA Center for the Public Trust operations. That coupled with his robust enthusiasm and personal strong ethics will insure the success of the important mission of CPT. He is a proven leader and we look forward to great accomplishments," said Bishop.

Founded in 2004, the CPT has been a champion in affirming and encouraging best practices, advocating ethics education and promoting confidence and trust in American corporations, as well as institutions of higher learning. In addition to the Ethics Network membership program, the CPT offers the Being A Difference Award program and the Student Center for the Public Trust, all of which position the organization to accomplish its mission to champion public trust.

Joining NASBA in January 2006 as a staff Director and Vice President for the CPT, Alexander will now oversee the growing number of programs and services the CPT offers. "I know of no greater business and public interest mission than that of the Center for the Public Trust and I know of no one better able and capably fit to serve as my successor as President of the Center than Alfonzo Alexander. Alfonzo not only brings with him the confidence and courage to champion the public trust but he also has the confidence and trust of all who know or come in contact with him," said current President and CEO, Costello.

Prior to joining NASBA, Alexander served as the Regional Manager & Managing Director for the Southeast Region of INROADS, Inc. where he led operations and business development in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. He joined INROADS as Managing Director of their Memphis office and experienced progressive growth throughout his tenure there. Prior to joining INROADS, Alexander held several leadership positions in operations management and human resources at the Quaker Oats Company.

Alexander has a passion for working in the community. He serves as the Past Chairman of the Board of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes of Middle TN, the Treasurer of the 100 Black Men of Middle TN, the Past President of Youth Encouragement Services Board of Directors, a member of the International Advisory Forum for Beta Alpha Psi, the Healthcare Compliance Board Certification Board, and a member of the Metropolitan Nashville Sports Authority Board of Directors.
