Jim Fournier is the CEO of Tru and has over twenty years-experience in digital identity and distributed data. He was a Geometry Partner with Silicon Graphics in the early ‘90’s and in 2000 produced the Planetwork Conference in San Francisco. That launched a community that published a seminal whitepaper on social networks in 2003. He also invested in a key social patent resulting in founders shares in Linkedin.

For a decade he served on the board of XDI.org seeking to create an open protocol for permissioned internet data exchange. In 2015, he and his technical partner realized how to actually do it and founded JLINC. In 2019 he started building Tru on the JLINC tech stack.
