Please Meet The Empyrean Trust Team
Our CEO and Co-Founder, Nth Bar-Fields, originally worked in the nonprofit management sector. There, he helped organizations with noble causes realize their missions while remaining solvent. Seeing the challenges that nonprofits as a whole were going to face in the future, he began creating strategies to transform nonprofits into for-profit social enterprises. The skills he acquired also lend themselves to startups with noble visions, such as the kind of clients Empyrean Trust wants to work with. As a grant writer, he secured well over $6,000,000 for the clients he partnered with to develop their programs. Scoring amongst the highest possible scores on cognitive ability tests used by laboratories at U.C. Berkeley, MIT, and University of Virginia, Nth has found an application for his skillset in the area of helping companies raise funds in innovative ways.
Our co-founder, Odessa Olivier, was originally Empyrean Trust’s silent partner and its first investor. She has now come out of retirement to join the team as their COO and internal consultant. Odessa began work at Sumitomo Bank in 1970 and retired decades later. During her tenure at Sumitomo, she acquired a savvy understanding for what constitutes a wise investment and has been happy to impart her wisdom and experience in supporting Empyrean Trust’s team.
Our vice president, Roshawnda Reed, joined Empyrean Trust in early 2019. Since joining, she has been instrumental in Empyrean’s growth in the Houston area, and is solely responsible for Empyrean’s clientele increasing by 50%. Roshawnda has a background in real-estate and business. In addition to her executive role, she can help startups that are ready to transition from co-working spaces to secure office spaces and buildings that perfectly fit all factors they must consider.
Our President, Joshua Boylan, has degrees in philosophy and psychology, and academic backgrounds in physics and engineering. This gives him an ability to communicate with companies working in a wide range of industries. A purebred entrepreneur and one of our co-owners, Joshua is responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations. Combined with his high-functioning autism, he serves as our resident business analyst. Joshua acts to ensure our company’s standing is safeguarded and that as a company we keep thinking ahead.
Our Co-Founder and Evaluation Officer Kjell-Ruben Tverli hails from Norway, and brings a unique set of skills to Empyrean Trust. Kjell was diagnosed with high functioning autism, however he is also a documented body-language wizard. The latter is an ability that only an estimated 1-in-300 people have. To date, he is the only body-language wizard who is also diagnosed as autistic. He uses his conditions to detect incredibly subtle signals and detect credibility and falsehoods. He has been recommended in-house to companies such as Komplett to screen people for deception, truth, and grey areas in between. He now uses his skills as a credibility analyst to help those who come to Empyrean Trust when they are in need of assistance with negotiations with other parties.
Our CTO, Ken Blanchard, started writing professional software 30 years ago and remains in business today because he has always loved what he does. The pure magic of getting a computer to do something that causes people to say, “Wow, just look at that!” has never gone away. He has created over a hundred software systems that will work with you to breathe life into your visions. Ken feels his job is not complete until you are totally happy with the work he has done for you. He believes he must earn your trust each and every day, with each and every commitment he makes.
