Bill Pachoud

Chief Systems Administrator

As the Chief System Administrator at Solbourne Computer, Bill dealt with data center connectivity and uptime challenges daily. He couldn’t find products that could solve his data center issues, so he designed a server power supply that was nearly impossible to disconnect. That resulted in the Z-LOCK. Knowing he created a must-have product for data centers, Bill started Zonit in 2007. Bill earned his B.S. from the University of Colorado, Boulder. 

Bill also founded and is the CTO of the Root Group.
