About Our Presenter:

Richard Crespin, Executive Director
Corporate Responsibility Officer Association (CROA)


Richard is the President of Member Services for the SharedXpertise Forums and the Executive Director of the Corporate Responsibility Officer Association (CROA). The CROA is the membership society for corporate responsibility professionals, service providers, policy makers, and influencers in the areas of corporate governance, sustainability, and citizenship. The Association works to advance the profession of corporate responsibility by fostering a community of practice though advocacy, programs, events, publications, and professional development for its members.

Among the many initiatives of the CROA are its annual summits, the "Corporate Excellence for Government" roundtable, a European steering committee, and the first comprehensive "Corporate Responsibility Best Practices" study conducted in collaboration with The NYSE Euronext. The CROA also publishes Corporate Responsibility Magazine, which offers an array of thought leadership on best practices and the profession, including its annual "100 Best Corporate Citizens" list, recognized as the world's top corporate responsibility ranking based on publicly-available information; the "Corporate Responsibility Black List," highlighting the lack of transparency within Russell 1000 companies; and the "Best Corporate Citizens in Government Contracting" list.

In addition to his leadership with SharedXpertise Forums and the CROA, Mr. Crespin has worked with some of the largest finance and logistics enterprises in the world, including the U.S. Transportation Command, and in the back offices of several large multi-national banks. Earlier in his career he founded The Delve Group, Inc., a marketing and branding firm. He also headed the Defense Strategy Consulting Practice of American Management Systems.

Mr. Crespin earned a B.A. in International Affairs from George Washington University and is a graduate of The General Manager Program™ (TGMP) at Harvard Business School. He currently serves as President of the George Washington University Alumni Association.
