About the Changing Landscape
Novitas Data was recently featured in a KGW News story about businesses changing tactics during the pandemic. Our own Scott Stevens represented us well.
Co-founder and CEO
Rob, one of the original owners of Novitas, took the helm in 2013 and now oversees all business responsibilities. He’s committed to creating a positive environment where contented employees are motivated to provide top notch solutions and support to their clients.

Marc oversees Novitas’s coding and imaging departments, and manages electronic discovery projects — a role he’s performed since 1995.
Marc enjoys his morning workouts, hiking, DIY house projects and Orange Theory.
If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.
Director of Project Management
Stephen oversees the hosting, production and forensics departments at Novitas. He has extensive project management experience and is our senior Relativity expert. He enjoys the constant challenge of solving real-world litigation-based problem sets.
When he’s not helping clients, Stephen enjoys spending time in Oregon’s great outdoors, cooking and spending time with his family.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
- Stephen Arment
Director of Business Development
Scott’s role is a blend of sales, sales management, project management & marketing; the diversity of responsibilities and client matters makes his job enjoyable, as well as the creative thinking a smaller company affords.
Scott enjoys skiing, cycling, working out at the gym and travel.
Plan the work, work the plan.
- Scott Stevens
Director Information Security, Director Information Systems
Scott is our resident InfoSec pit bull. He diligently ensures that we follow best practices in every aspect of our information security program and helps us keep your data safe.
Scott likes to get down in the trenches and nerd out on everything IT. He's into travel, whitewater, and drone photography. Scott is definitely a Dog Person.
Is that implemented according to current policy?
Manager of Forensic Services
As Novitas’ resident forensics expert, Matthew enjoys unraveling a project’s complexities, hunting through large data sets for hidden artifacts that will solve the problem at hand.
Matt enjoys gaming, baseball and family hikes.
Jennifer oversees Novitas company operations, growth and development, and policy matters, as well as all things financial - planning budgeting, cash flow, and investment priorities. She enjoys the teamwork ethos of the company’s culture, and the dynamic team.
In her spare time, Jennifer appreciates camping and fishing and sampling the Willamette Valley’s wonderful wines.
- Rob Reid

IT / Technical Services Lead
Daniel received his computer science degree right here in Portland with an emphasis on cybersecurity/cryptography and data analysis. Since then he's been wearing many hats for us at Novitas, from IT services to data manipulation. Daniel's the guy you call when you need a complex problem solved quickly.
Like most tech millennials, Daniel's hobbies are eclectic at best, splitting his free time between tackling software in code jams, and people in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
When you do things right, people won't be sure you did anything at all.
