Chief Executive Officer
Born and raised in Canada, Don is a career long entrepreneur, owning and operating several business ventures over the last thirty years. Don started running a family surgical instrument manufacturing business at the age of twenty one after passing on an opportunity to play professional hockey in Europe. Over the next four years he arranged a deal with a venture capital firm that acquired a minority interest in the family business. That experience led him to enter the financial services business.
In 1992, Don and his family moved to Florida and started a non-profit missing child organization called Child Watch of North America. As President
of Child Watch he attracted national partnerships with Shell Oil, Texaco, AT&T, Toys R Us, Pizza Hut, Continental Airlines, KB Toys and
Epson. Mr. Wood developed and successfully implemented major marketing campaigns with these major corporations. In June 2003, Shell Oil distributed
over one million photo ID card kits to new and existing customers. Over a three year period Shell and Texaco saw a 89% increase in phone card sales by
adding pictures of missing children to the product and point of sale material (nine children were also successfully recovered). Mr. Wood has been
featured on many major television broadcasts including CBS 48 Hours, Primetime Live and Geraldo. Child Watch has successfully recovered over 200
While still actively involved in Child Watch, in 2001 Don served for 5 years as CEO/President of the Hard Rock Academy, a brand extension of Hard Rock Cafe International.
Don is currently a board member of the Brain Foundation of Florida and a Licensed Private Investigator.
