He takes great pride in leading a dedicated team that shares a passion for delivering excellent customer service and continuous improvement. Away from work, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife Sherry - a high school marketing teacher, and their daughters Madeline and Quinn. His interests include golf, travel, and cheering for The Ohio State Buckeyes.
