The National Association of State Boards of Accountancy has named Alfonzo Alexander as the next president of the NASBA Center for the Public Trust.

Alexander, who currently serves as NASBA's chief relationship officer, will take over as president of the ethics organization on Jan. 1, 2012, on the retirement of David Costello, who is now both chief of the Center for the Public Trust and president and chief executive of NASBA.

"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," said Costello. "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."

"Alfonzo will bring enhanced professional business acumen to the NASBA Center for the Public Trust operations," said Ken Bishop, who will be succeeding Costello as president and CEO of NASBA. "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."

Alexander joined NASBA in 2006 as a staff director and vice president for the Center for the Public Trust. Prior to that, he was regional manager and managing director for the Southeast Region of Inroads Inc.

He holds a BS in Business Administration with an emphasis on Human Resources Management from Tennessee Technological University, and an MBA from Lipscomb University.
