COO, WoosterMedia & Designing Genius
Scot spent the last 25 years as a software executive in Corporate America before joining WoosterMedia to start his second career as an entrepreneur. The idea of helping smart and talented people amplify their genius by reaching new audiences around the world was too much of an opportunity to pass on.
Scot started his career in technology with Gateway 2000™ selling computers in cow spotted boxes. At Gateway, Scot found his calling of building high-performing, scalable, and predictable sales teams. Like many in the technology space, Scot went looking for a software start-up where he could get in on the ground floor. Within his first two years, Scot got to experience his first exit when the small start-up he joined was acquired by Intuit. Over the next twenty years, Scot held leadership roles in both SMB and Enterprise software companies.
During his career, he had the opportunity to scale both privately held and publicly owned software companies through organic growth and strategic acquisition. Additionally, Scot was able to hone his skills when several of the companies he worked for were acquired by Private Equity firms, such as, TA Associates, Bain Capital, and Insight Venture Partners.
Today, Scot is the COO for both WoosterMedia and Designing Genius. In his role(s) he works closely with the internal teams to build scalable and repeatable processes to keep pace with the rapidly expanding suite of products and services. You will also see him on-site with customers and potential clients, finding new and innovative ways to transform their businesses and brands.
