Scott Stouffer

Chief Executive Officer

Scott is a serial entrepreneur. And, some say, serial challenger of the status quo. Throughout his career, Scott has shown a talent for leading organizations like Salsa through periods of rapid growth. After successfully running Visual Networks, Optinuity and most recently Grodo, Scott says leading the talented team at Salsa perfectly matches his drive for change. He sees the potential for citizen engagement to redefine our society. As CEO, Scott will ensure Salsa continues to efficiently and effectively deliver products that are high quality, stable, and profoundly impactful while still providing a world class support experience for our clients.
