– USA, OR –  LegitScript, the leader in merchant and product certification and monitoring for internet and payment companies, today announced the appointment of Scott Roth as CEO, succeeding founder John Horton who will shift to Executive Chairman and will serve as  Chief Strategy Officer.

Scott Roth joined LegitScript as President earlier this year after leading Portland, Oregon-based technology company Jama Software as CEO.

“With Scott’s track record in scaling software and technology companies, I have full confidence in his ability to lead LegitScript into the future,” said founder John Horton. “Scott is a proven executive who has already demonstrated success in leading a growing company and fostering a great culture. Scott is committed to our vision of a safer, more transparent internet and payment ecosystem, and I’m grateful to have him as CEO.”

John Horton has served as CEO since founding the company in 2007. Before founding LegitScript, Horton worked for the White House and served as a prosecuting attorney.
