Great results start with great leaders.
“I enjoy how every project is a new challenge. No two clients are the same, requiring us to be innovative in our approach. ”
- Chad Hayton, Vice President, Technology
Fueled by the challenge, Chad is always looking for a new project to work on. At the University of California, Davis he worked as a veterinary assistant, then during graduate school at Penn State University, he was an English instructor who dreamed of becoming an English professor. But with the dawning of the Internet he was drawn into the tech world and hasn’t turned back.
Chad began as a web developer for Qualcomm in San Diego, then came to the East Coast as a web development manager for GMAC before joining Pace nine years ago. As Pace’s Captain of Technology, he oversees all development projects and welcomes each new member of his team with a unique Star Wars bobblehead.
A jack-of-all-trades, he has a blue belt in Jiujitsu and training in Muay Thai, but also enjoys catching shows at the community theatre and spending time with his two “big kids” – who are currently in graduate programs at Penn State and Wake Forest University.
