We are excited to announce that Scott Sader has joined the Chocolatey Team as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)!

Scott has been an "IT guy" since he got his first computer, a 33 MHz 486, which was blazingly fast for its time. Its 2400 baud modem was more than capable of connecting him to the local BBS (bulletin board system), and his love of technology exploded from there. He would build his next computer himself as a teenager, bankrolled by funds from his first IT job at an ISP (internet service provider).

Nearly 25 years later, Scott joins Chocolatey Software as Chief Information Security Officer, having held nothing but IT jobs throughout his professional career. He has worked in virtually all areas of IT, from networking, systems, support, software development, and most recently, security for the past 14 years. He holds a B.A. in Computer Information Systems, an M.B.A. in management and finance, and numerous certifications, including CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional).

Scott is passionate about automation, once teaching formal classes on VBScript before cutting his teeth on PowerShell 1.0. He has written countless applications using PowerShell, primarily in its early days, many of which are still in use today. He is excited to join an automation company, Chocolatey Software, and hopes that they may one day let him write some code … or at least look at it!

In his free time, Scott likes to hang out with his two sons, partake in anything technology-related, ride his motorcycle, and watch a wide variety of sports. He will be based remotely in Lawrence, Kansas, USA, making occasional visits to the office in Topeka.
