CHAD STERLINGCHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Chad Sterling is our Chief Executive Officer. He is responsible for the overall direction and leadership of Altair Global – for leading our global strategy and ensuring that we are positioned for success worldwide. His main focus is making sure the Altair organization and its technology and supplier partners are aligned to provide support and guidance to the clients and families that we serve every day across the globe.
So that’s what he does, but how does he do it? Easy. Chad has those great acronyms after his name: BBA, MBA, CRP, GMS. He has 20 years of experience in the industry and 13 at Altair Global. His commitment to our company and consistent progression proves his dedication – as former SVP of Finance and Accounting, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and President, he knows this company from A to Z. He’s a shareholder too, so he’s literally invested in the future of our company.
But here’s what you don’t get to see on his resume: he’s been known to show up at company events with a karaoke machine, and he isn’t bashful about belting out off-key renditions of rock and roll classics. He will repeatedly step out of line at a company pizza party to allow others go in front of him. He’s a marathoner – someone who runs 26-mile races for fun. He treasures his weekly coaching sessions, not in the workplace, but with the elementary school baseball and basketball teams he coaches. He’s helpful to others and not afraid to be himself – a key quality in a leader at Altair Global.
He consistently demonstrates great leadership and dedication – as seen in his commitment to marathons and the foundation he’s helped build at Altair for over a decade.
