Innovating for a Sustainable Future

Frank Trevino

I am a technology consultant, space professional, and sustainability expert focused on the dual purpose of terrestrial and space domain innovation to address sustainability challenges on Earth and space. I currently hold advisory and consulting positions with numerous organizations including Space Foundation, Clear Mobitel, and Zero Gravity Sciences.

I am an experienced industry executive and entrepreneur in the space and smart city industries. My digital transformation philosophy is to connect people, processes, products, and technology. Previously, I held a senior executive expatriate role at Korea Telecom (KT) in South Korea, where I focused on smart city and sustainability platforms, leading global digital transformation strategies. I also held executive positions, including vice president at Digi-Data Corp. (acquired by Synchronoss Technologies), vice president at Exodus Space, and vice president at Space Foundation. My entrepreneurial journey includes participating in several innovation programs such as the IBM Watson AI XPrize, NASA iTech, and Hello Tomorrow.

I embarked on my educational journey at the University of Texas at Austin, where I earned my BS and laid the foundation for my career. Driven by a passion for business and innovation, I pursued an MBA at the University of Houston, where I honed my strategic thinking and entrepreneurial skills. My quest for knowledge and impact then led me to the University of Oxford, where I completed my MSc, deepening my expertise in sustainable urban development and global strategy.

Beyond my professional life, I volunteer as a Rise Selector with the University of Oxford, helping identify promising young people for the Rhodes Trust Rise Program. Additionally, I serve on the advisory board of the AI For Good Foundation and STAR Sciences. I am passionate about mentoring the next generation of innovators and making a positive impact through technology.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking in the Texas hill country, experimenting with new technologies, and traveling with my wife and our Japanese Spitz. I am also an avid reader of science fiction, which constantly inspires my work in tech and sustainability.

Looking ahead, I am excited about exploring new ways to integrate space technology into sustainable development initiatives, particularly in underserved communities.
