Consultant, CDS Consulting Co-op
Todd Wallace has been a proud member-owner of the CDS Consulting Co-op, a shared services cooperative of consultants dedicated to building and strengthening cooperative businesses, since 2009. Before that he served on the board of his local food co-op for seven years, five as the board president. He currently works with the boards and management of cooperatives and like-minded non-profits as a trainer, coach, facilitator and consultant on matters of leadership, governance, successful board / management collaboration, and group process design. With clients in five different time zones, a life of constant travel has taught him to appreciate his lovely home of Portland, Oregon, where summers are too short and winter rains are an excuse for curling up with espresso drinks and a thick book. Lately, he’s become most excited by the questions cooperators are asking related to identity, long-term relevancy, impact, and creating a healthy democracy.
