Wade Williams, chief technology officer of San Diego-based company PayLease, has been appointed chairman of Tech San Diego’s CTO and Software Engineering Roundtable.

Tech San Diego, a regional technology industry association that brings together local technology industry leaders for peer networking and collaboration forums, announced the appointment Thursday.

“We are living in a competitive world and market, and it is vitally important to the continued success of San Diego technology companies that we take the time to learn from one another and share our insights,” Williams said.

Before joining PayLease, which provides property management companies and HOAs with online payment, billing and utility expense management, Williams was vice president of software engineering at Networkfleet, according to the industry association.

Williams succeeds founding roundtable chairman Chris Fletcher, vice president of software engineering at Nextech.
