Todd Alton, CFA®

Chief Executive Officer

Todd is Public Trust’s Chief Executive Officer appointed unanimously by the Board of Managers. Prior to becoming CEO, Todd served as the President of Public Trust where he was responsible for establishing short- and long-term objectives for the firm; presiding over the workforce; and ensuring proper resource allocation that empowered all departments to meet their goals and, thereby, collectively achieve the firm’s objectives. Todd previously worked for Public Trust in various capacities and across all functions during the early formative years of the business. His extensive background uniquely qualifies Todd for his current role. Operationally, Todd helped fully develop and professionalize the credit research department; expand the portfolio management department’s strategic capabilities; and focus the business on automating workflow processes. In addition, Todd has been instrumental in the development of key client relationships and has consistently represented the brand as a keynote speaker and subject matter expert. Prior to Public Trust, Todd most recently served as a Managing Director for Bear Creek Asset Management where he helped develop and expand their Private Equity platform and manage other elements of the firm. Over the past two decades, Todd led and managed business units and teams in such sectors as banking, investment banking, and structured finance. During tenures at CCB Corp and Piper Jaffray, Todd held roles in institutional bond sales, trading, asset liability management, and investment portfolio management. After the 2007 Financial Crisis, Todd led a unit of structured finance and commercial real estate experts at Frederick Ross-Asset Advisory Alliance. His team focused on providing tranche-level assessments to special servicers of CMBS securities. He also served in public sector roles at both the FDIC and Federal Reserve where he was responsible for resolving failed banks; participating in material loss reviews; and was a subject matter expert in the areas of capital markets, interest rate risk, and commercial real estate lending. Todd received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Arkansas, is a CFA® charterholder, and a member of CFA Society Colorado. He is an active member of Legatus Denver; an Economic Development Council Member for the Downtown Denver Partnership; an Advisory Board Member for Franchise Evolution Partners; and is a member of the President’s Advisory Council at FOCUS.
