CannabisBPO, a leading contact center service provider for the cannabis industry, is happy to announce the addition of Scott Rudder to the company’s advisory board. Mr. Rudder is currently president of the Board of Directors for the New Jersey CannaBusiness Association (NJCBA), the first and most prominent trade association in New Jersey that specializes in growing and developing the cannabis industry in a responsible and sustainable manner.

Scott is a walking resource for legislation and grass roots initiatives. His years in local and state political environments, coupled with his corporate experience provides a wealth of knowledge that has been backed up by an incredible track record in the cannabis sector.  He is a valuable asset to any CannabisBPO client trying to understand the landscape of legalization and more,” says Marshall Ogen, VP of Business Strategy at CannabisBPO.

Mr. Rudder is a former mayor of Medford Township and former Republican Assemblyman from Burlington County. He’s also a partner at Burton Trent Public Affairs, an advocacy and information center for New Jersey’s cannabis industry, where he represents clients on various issues such as cannabis business strategies, energy, transportation, and entertainment. As an Assemblyman, he served on the Transportation and Independent Authorities Committee as well as the Environment and Solid Waste Committee.

During his tenure in the Assembly, he worked on a range of legislative matters that impacted the state’s energy and transportation infrastructure as well as the environment. His bi-partisan approach allowed him to sponsor legislation that was signed into law by both Republican and Democrat Administrations. In addition to his official elected offices, Mr. Rudder served in high-level staff positions for a previous New Jersey Governor, a Member of Congress and a former Speaker of the General Assembly.

Mr. Rudder’s contributions to New Jersey’s cannabis industry have been recognized by multiple groups. He was included in Insider NJ’s Policy Maker list for two consecutive years – 2017 and 2018. Mr. Rudder also made the list of top 11 most influential people who are shaping New Jersey’s cannabis industry.

Mr. Rudder previously worked as a Business Development executive at Lockheed Martin, an American global defense, security, aerospace and advanced technologies company. He has successfully handled various projects for the company, including energy programs, missile defense programs, and Special Forces technologies.
