David Rumfelt's chief priority as the new president of TOLD Corp. is pretty straightforward--continue changing the direction of the business. Since the Camarillo-based company was founded in 1973, it has been a leading developer of commercial properties in Ventura County and in portions of the Midwest.

In 1985, when TOLD opened the 56-building Channel Islands Business Center in Oxnard, it was to be the crown jewel of Gilbert's commercial real estate empire. TOLD had become the biggest developer of industrial buildings in Ventura County, and as the area grew, so did Gilbert's fortune.

Now his work with U.N. police has drawn a cloud of suspicion.
