Chad has managed and run sales organizations for over 17 years. He was Director of sales for NTI Group, a K-12 Ed company that sold SAAS to school district superintendents, which was acquired by Blackboard for $180 million.

Chad has had a personal family experience with substance abuse which fueled his entrepreneurial drive to build a behavioral health tech platform. As the founder of Addiction PROS, he has built HIPAA-compliant care navigator capability for institutions, which serves over 125,000 families, 10,000 staff/employees and over 50,000 students.
