ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 20, 2022 — Matt Kinsey, of Coral Springs, Florida, is the new International President of Toastmasters International, the world’s leading organization devoted to communication and leadership skills development. Kinsey assumed the one-year term at the organization’s 2022 International Convention, held in Nashville, Aug. 17-20.

Kinsey is the CISO of IT Fusion in Coral Springs, Florida, which he started in 2007. Kinsey oversees all aspects of his IT consulting firm that services small and medium-sized businesses in the South Florida area.
