Software development company Tendenci has named Scott Pederson as its new vice president, who returns after departing nearly 20 years ago when he helped launch the company.
Pederson will be bringing more than 23 years of technology experience to his new role with the company that is currently working on its new Tendenci Open Source (News - Alert) Content Management System. Pederson will be reporting to Founder and CEO Ed Schipul.
Pederson has experience in a new number of difference roles and different companies. Some of these positions include Director of Engineering with Telespace LLC; Director, IT Operations at eLoyalty (News - Alert) Corporation; and a role at Commercial Desktop Division of Hewlett-Packard. Pederson previously worked at Tendenci in the mid-1990s when it was originally known as Schipul Technologies.
“Scott put his stamp on the company long ago with a customer-focused approach supported by reliable and available technology,” said Ed Schipul, who welcomed his former colleague back to the company.
“We are happy to have Scott rejoin Team Tendenci, and we look forward to his contributions in making Tendenci Open Source CMS the world's leading open source software platform for NPOs, associations and other cause-related organizations.”
Tendenci is headquartered in Houston, TX with operations in Silicon Valley. The company is currently at work on one of its biggest projects yet, the Tendenci Open Source Content Management System, which is purpose-built for cause-related organizations for greater control of their online presence.
“Tendenci makes it easy for associations and NPOs to promote and build support for their mission, generate revenue, and manage and promote event,” says the company.
Currently the CMS has one million users including Metropolitan New York Library Council and Houston Technology Center.
Tendenci also works behind powering the websites of DePelchin Children’s Center, Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles and Advance.org.
