Dave Todaro

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Ascendle’s Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Dave Todaro, has lived and breathed software development for the past 35+ years. He’s trained and managed teams responsible for building award-winning, mission-critical software in a variety of leadership roles.

Dave has a particular passion for predictable, repeatable, and consistent software development, and fell in love with Scrum when he adopted it over 11 years ago. He’s since refined the process with his teams and has traveled the world, speaking to thousands of software professionals about a variety of agile topics.

His labor of love was translating this experience into his new book, The Epic Guide to Agile: More Business Value on a Predictable Schedule with Scrum, published in 2019.
