Bartholomew T. MongovenBartholomew T. (Bart) Mongoven is President and CEO of Keyframe Policy Consulting. He guides Keyframe in its focus on the evolution of corporate and public policy issues at the intersection of risk and sustainability. He and his staff of analysts identify emerging issues that corporations will face in the short, medium, and long term, and examine the thought leaders, influential figures, and strategists in NGOs, academia, and industry pressing those issues forward. In this context, he helps clients understand, predict, and prepare for the future understanding of “sustainability.”

Mongoven specializes in policy formation surrounding climate change, corporate social responsibility, human rights, and chemicals.

In the intervening years, he has studied policy formation in Latin America, Africa, and Asia as well as the United States, and he is expert in the process of international treaty development.

From 2003 until 2010, Mongoven worked for Austin-based Stratfor, Inc., a publishing and consulting firm. Mongoven oversaw Stratfor’s Public Policy Group. In January 2011, Keyframe spun off from Stratfor to become an independent entity.

Over the course of his career, Mongoven has worked with executives from most of the companies in the Fortune 50 and generally works with the senior leaders of corporations, including CEOs, corporate secretaries, general counsels, and vice-presidents/directors of sustainability.

He speaks often to corporate audiences on subjects ranging from emerging issues to the basic debates at the center of sustainability discussions today.
