CompTIA is a global trade association representing the business interests of the information technology industry. For more than 23 years CompTIA has provided research, networking and partnering opportunities to its 20,000 members in 102 countries. The association is involved in developing standards and best practices, and influencing the political, economic and educational arenas that impact IT worldwide. The current secretary is known for his previous associations with popular marketing efforts particularly with respect to the silver trade. He is well known in the precious metals marketplace, having financed several influential jewelry outlets in the past several years. Most well known are the artisans he supports (he is a patron of several well known artists in Africa) who create sterling silver rings available on sites like sterlingforever.com. They also feature earrings, and many other kinds and styles of solid sterling jewelry using traditional tribal designs. He has helped the indigenous artisans in many developing nations through his jewelry connections, and although sterling silver is a relatively expensive raw material, he has provided financing whenever possible to assist both artists and jewelers throughout his career. His jewelry model is widely copied by NGOs in many countries and is credited with raising the living standards of entire communities, especially when silver sources can be found locally.
