2019 Global Citizen Award Recipient: E. Martin Heldring

This award was established to celebrate those who have demonstrated a commitment to the principles set forth in the Declaration of Interdependence – the Global Interdependence Center’s founding document – and who have been strong advocates of GIC’s efforts to pursue the globalization of our worldwide communities through increased knowledge, understanding and partnership.

With over a decade of service on GIC’s Board of Directors, eight of which serving as Board Treasurer, we are pleased to recognize Martin for his ongoing support, leadership and dedication to the Global Interdependence Center and are delighted to announce him as the recipient of the 2019 Global Citizen Award.

E. Martin Heldring, senior vice president and managing director of TD Bank, N.A, joined GIC’s Board of Directors in 2008. Prior to his current position, he was president and CEO of Harris – Glencoe. Martin studied at the London School of Economics and London University in 1976 and a year later graduated cum laude from Georgetown University with a B.S. in foreign service in international economics. Martin earned the honors of Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Alpha Theta and Pi Sigma Theta. After graduation, he joined Harris’ Credit Training Program and from 1978 to 1983 he served in Harris’ Asia/Pacific division as a foreign exchange trader and as Manager of Marketing/Credit. After which, he served in Harris’ large corporate middle market group managing highly leveraged transactions and workout situations until 1987 when he became general manager of Harris Bank International Corporation in New York. In 1991, Martin returned to Asia to serve as General Manager of BMO’s Seoul, Korea Branch. From 1994-7, he led Bank of Montreal’s US Financial Institutions Group. Martin went on to lead a strategy group working with Bancomer, BMO’s Mexican partner until 2002.

In addition to his undergraduate work, Martin also earned an MBA with a major in finance from University of Chicago (1980) and he went through the executive management program at Northwestern University (1995). Martin’s father, Frederick, founded the Global Interdependence Center in 1976.
