Ed Sunder joined Search Associates after founding and successfully running an award-winning web development firm for fourteen years. Three HD, a Chattanooga-based company founded by Ed with friends, was sold to Neathawk Dubuque & Packett (ND&P) in 2010. Ed remained with ND&P for the next four-and-a-half years as the Director of Interactive. During that time, Search Associates contracted the company for its 2011 redesign project, with Ed heading the technology portion of the project.

"Coming on board full time at Search was very exciting for me, but it also felt very comfortable. I am particularly thrilled to be working with people who I have an immense amount of respect for, and I look forward to the new opportunities ahead of us."

Since joining Search Associates, Ed has teamed with Web Developer Rob Snyder to significantly improve our interactive web presence. Time and time again, candidates and schools have commented on how user-friendly and consistent our website remains. Since coming on board, Ed and Rob have worked together to transform Search Associates websites into a powerful yet easy-to-use tool for both candidates and recruiters,.

Outside of his career, Ed and his wife Betsy have been married for 26 years and have six sons ranging in age from 13-23. With so many boys, he has been involved in Boy Scouts for over 10 years and is the Scoutmaster of Troop 2 in Chattanooga. In December of 2016, he completed his Masters in Computer Science from Georgia Tech specializing in Computational Perceptions and Robotics. Ed also has a number of hobbies that keep him busy. As an avid astrophotographer, Ed has an interest in astronomy and astrophotography, lecturing occasionally to regional astronomy clubs. He also builds and flies remote control planes, helicopters, and quadcopters and is a serious scale model builder. He lives in Flintstone, Georgia near Chattanooga, Tennessee.
