Todd is a Certified Management Accountant (CMA), which is a professional certification credential in the management accounting and financial management fields.

He now serves on the executive board for the organization where he continues to pour into community, youth, arts, education, professional, and faith-based organizations.
Todd’s robust career experience has contributed to his success at INDATEL. “Since joining INDATEL last January, I have seen tremendous growth,” he said. “By April, I was able to fully transition all accounting and regulatory functions to our Kansas headquarters.” In his new role as Vice President of Finance and Accounting, Todd handles the everyday operations and planning of INDATEL’s budgeting, banking operations, and controls.
“My transition to the new role has been very smooth,” Todd said. “From day one, the team made sure that I understood the architecture of the INDATEL business model.” As for his goals, Todd explained that he is looking forward to continued growth. He is also set on finding methods to manage and automate processes, so that INDATEL has the capacity to carry out that growth. He is looking to automate INDATEL’s sales process, delivery process, billing, and more.
“I’m most looking forward to expanding our footprint nationally,” Todd said. “Our team is dedicated to further enhancing our ability to meet member needs, as both a supplier and customer.” INDATEL is focused on exposing member resources on a nationwide scale.
In his free time, Todd enjoys watching sports with his family. “We’re big Kanas City Royals fans, so we were all ecstatic when they won The World Series back in 2015,” he said. “It was exciting for us and the entire community.” Todd is a father to two sons, both of which he instilled the need to volunteer. “I’m fortunate to have my sons living with me because of the pandemic,” he said. “It’s been really nice having the whole family here.” Todd and his family have spent a lot of time watching their dogs run around in the backyard and playing their favorite pastime, Pokémon Go.
