Adam Stachelek

Chief Operating Officer


Hi, I'm Adam. As a Co-founder and the Chief Operating Officer at Cantina, my role is to ensure that we’re delivering for our clients in a way that delights them and excites our team. I couldn’t be prouder of what Cantina has become since we began in 2007.

After earning my Bachelor’s in Computer Science from UMass Amherst, I’ve spent nearly two decades focusing on technical architecture and development across the web, mobile and connected devices. I’ve worked on projects ranging from CMS-driven marketing platforms to implementing an entire ecosystem for online video delivery. Some notable projects include the [award-winning Link AKC connected collar](, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts member self-service portal, Liberty Medical Diabetes education website, and digital projects for The Financial Times, an industry-leading global business publication.
