Todd Duso is the Chief Operating Officer at the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF). Prior to joining BWF, he spent 7 years working in the Middle East in various executive leadership positions in the United Arab Emirates, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait. Todd brings over 30 years of strategic operations and organizational experience to the BWF team from both the public and private sector. Prior to his move to the Middle East he worked in the Pentagon with senior Army leadership.
Todd served as the lead subject matter expert for the Director, US Army Office of Business Transformation. This high-profile work required expert technical knowledge and experience in the areas of best business practices, portfolio management, strategic communications, business transformation and change management. He also served as the Program Manager for the Chief of Staff of the Army’s Strategic Leadership Development Program for General Officers and Senior Executive Civilians. This project required day to day interaction with the Army Staff and Secretariat to develop educational objectives, course curriculum, and marketing strategies for all levels of executive education. Along with developing and executing courses Todd coordinated and collaborated with Fortune 500 CEOs, leading scholars, journalists, government officials, and guest speakers for participation in the program.
In addition to his private sector operations experience Todd is an Army veteran who served as a commissioned officer and enlisted soldier. With both combat and noncombat deployments, he has a special place in his heart for veterans, military members and their families.
Todd and his wife Kristin are very glad to be living and working in New York City.
