Prior to his position at AAMVA, Saddler was the associate executive director of the Security Industry Association from 1999 to 2004 and the director of communications at the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association from 1995 to 1999.

Although Saddler will be taking over Oct. 1, Steve Christie will remain with AOCA for a few weeks to ease the transition.
