NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reputation and crisis strategist Davia Temin, CEO of Temin and Company, a management consultancy focused on marketing strategy, reputation and crisis management, and leadership coaching has been named to Trust Across America's 2013 list of the Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior.

"Trust is really the world's shadow currency today – it enables the smooth flow of international commerce, and progress in a multitude of areas," says Ms. Temin, who works with global CEOs, corporations, universities, and NGOs on leadership, marketing and media strategy, and advises major corporations on their women's leadership councils.

"But trust in business, and governmental institutions, is in terribly short supply," she states. "It is up to every one of us to understand the reasons why, and do whatever we can to help rebuild trust not only in the business and financial markets, but in our daily interactions. That is what I seek to do, and am so honored by this recognition."

According to Trust Across America – which studies, defines, and quantifies trustworthy business – this year's thought leaders in trustworthy business behavior represent individuals who can "genuinely transform the way organizations do business." Ms. Temin writes a column for entitled "Reputation Matters" covering crisis, resilience, reputation, marketing and branding strategy, social media, women's leadership, and corporate governance. In addition, she tweets (@DaviaTemin) regularly on these issues, and the Temin and Company website features a section devoted to pertinent thought leadership.

Ms. Temin is a frequent public speaker to corporations and other organizations on subjects ranging from rebuilding trust, crisis and reputation management and resilience to building brands over social media, executive presence, and presentation training. She appears regularly on local, national, and global television and radio.

In addition to her work as a crisis and reputation strategist, Ms. Temin serves as the First Vice Chair of the Board of Girl Scouts of the USA, Chair of the Board of Video Volunteers, and on the advisory boards of the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship at Columbia Journalism School and ProPublica, and on Harvard Kennedy School's Women's Leadership Board.
