Spaulding Ridge, LLC, a leading cloud advisory and SaaS implementation firm, announced two new additions to its leadership team this week, Chad MacKendrick as Associate Partner and Liz Schaffer as Vice President of Operations.

Chad MacKendrick joins Spaulding Ridge with more than 20 years of industry experience to support the continued growth of the firm. Before joining Spaulding Ridge, MacKendrick worked at Alithya/Ranzal in various roles the past 13 years, most recently as Vice President of Alliances and Sales Enablement. His passion is helping busy clients make successful software and implementation decisions more efficiently, with less risk. “I strive to make our clients’ job of evaluating technology easier by understanding their business issues and clearly articulating how we can help. In today’s lightning fast pace and volatile business climate, the faster we can understand each other and honestly assess a technology fit, the more value is realized,” said MacKendrick. Chad enjoys coaching youth sports, skiing, and family ping pong battles – these days outdoors in the fresh, non-COVID, air. Chad is based in Denver, CO.

Liz Schaffer was recently promoted to Vice President of Operations at Spaulding Ridge, where she leads company-wide Operations and Enablement. Schaffer recently led a complete digital transformation at Spaulding Ridge rolling out many of the technologies Spaulding implements, including Anaplan, NetSuite, and Salesforce.  Before joining Spaulding Ridge, Liz held various roles across sales, consulting, and operations at Anaplan. She has a passion for developing operational efficiencies and scaling businesses, as well as building strong teams and relationships across the company and with our alliance partners. Liz enjoys weightlifting, going on hiking trips, and reading outside. Liz is based in Denver, Colorado.

“We are excited to have Chad and Liz join our leadership team.  They both bring exceptional experience and their values line up well with our corporate values.  This also supports our continued success in the Denver market,” says Jay Laabs, CEO of Spaulding Ridge.
