Scott joined SPMB in 2016 to help Becky Stein expand the firm’s rapidly growing consumer practice. Today Scott is a project leader specializing in helping clients develop innovative and bleeding-edge businesses through talent acquisition. He typically works on Digital Commerce, Marketing, Product or General Management searches for a broad swath of consumer-oriented companies, generally with mid to large-scale clients.
Prior to SPMB, Scott was the CEO and Founder of a fitness company, Skenfit, which is oriented towards prospective collegiate athletes.

He also enjoys reading non-fiction, international travel and laughing with friends and family.
Who would you trade places with for one month?
I would trade places with a cross ocean sailor. I love the ocean and the sense of quiet isolation, but I could only do such a thing for about a month.
Which band would you love to tour with?
Daft Punk, because they tour extremely infrequently and when they do, they bring their families and it is generally a relatively quiet affair, which sounds nice. Their music is also very good.
What are your favorite books/movies?
My favorite book series are The Game of Thrones and Harry Potter on the fiction side. As far as nonfiction goes, the type of book I read the most, I tend to read a lot of economic and psychological theory books, especially books like Freakonomics, The Tipping Point, David and Goliath, and other similar titles. My favorite movie is Remember the Titans, but I am not picky with movies and will watch pretty much any genre.
What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Out-going, Creative, Joker… Rule Breaker!
