MEET OUR TEAM

Chad Trice

President

Chad is the President of two companies, both serving local government customers for over 10 years. Before that, Chad had both production level and leadership roles in software development, marketing & strategy, and creative direction. His diverse background allows him to be both a dreamer and a doer. If asked about why local government instead of larger corporations, he is answer is simple, “Having done both now, I really think the people that I get to work with in local government make a difference in our world, and that makes me think…perhaps I can help as well.” Chad also enjoys spending time with family and painting.
