Bozeman, Mont. (June 20, 2018) — Zoot Enterprises, a global fintech company providing advanced origination, acquisition, and decision management solutions, today announced that Chief Technology and Operations Officer Tony Rosanova, has been appointed President and CTO. Rosanova, who has been with the company since 1999, will continue report to Chris Nelson, CEO of Zoot Enterprises.
“We are delighted to announce this transition, which comes to an individual who has been instrumental in the maturation and growth of Zoot Enterprises over the last 19 years,” said Chris Nelson, Zoot CEO. “Tony is an experienced leader who consistently delivers results while engendering an attitude of respect among those who work with him,” Nelson continued.
Rosanova first joined Zoot as the IT Resource Manager, and has also held positions at Zoot including Systems Administration Manager, CTO, and COO/CTO. During his tenure, Rosanova led the design of Zoot’s data center and the expansion from one to five data centers across the US and Europe, as well as defined and implemented Zoot’s internal and external audit programs.
Rosanova has also been instrumental in the expansion of the organization’s products and services, pushing for Zoot’s entrance into the auto titling services space – which the company did in 2017. Prior to Zoot, he worked for the United States Geological Survey. Rosanova studied Marketing at Arizona State University and Advertising at Northern Arizona University.

Zoot is changing our entire approach to realize these opportunities, from our technology and processes to our culture and people.” “We want to thrill our customers with innovation and customer service,” Rosanova continued.
Concurrent to this announcement, Dennis Dixon, President of Zoot Enterprises, was named President Emeritus – an appointment which will allow him to support Zoot during this transition. Dennis will retire next year after a distinguished 14-year career at Zoot Enterprises.
“We are so grateful to Dennis for the experience, guidance, and personality that he brought to Zoot over his 13 years as President, and for the guidance that he will continue to provide over the next year,” remarked Nelson. “Without him, we would not be where we are today.”
