"Scott's not a total loser."
"Yes he is."
"Big heart. Big thinking. Scott brings both to every project, every time. He knows his craft and he knows this business and most importantly, he knows that advertising is a team sport and cares as much about his co-workers as he does for the work."
Chief Creative Officer
“Scott’s got it all. The talent to create award-winning work, the smarts to make sure it's strategically sound, the personality to win over and endear clients, and the kindness and caring to be a great manager. He's a unique talent who I've had the pleasure of watching grow and develop into a world-class creative over 20 years, and a real gem.”
CEO/Chairman Hill Holliday
"I was Scott's first boss, and if I had my way, I would be the second, third and fourth boss, too. That's how many times I tried to hire him after that. You can't teach what Scott has, the ability to be "on target" strategically, and a little left of center creatively. A true original, who always solves business problems in an unexpected way."
EVP General Manager, 22Squared
"Scott gets it. And, when I say “it”, I mean all of it. He understood our target and figured out a way to tell their story in an authentic way. He cemented the voice of our brand better than anyone before him. He truly has a way with words and ideas that make it…all of it, so damn good!"
Manager of Brand Marketing, Capella University
"Scott came to us at just the right time. Like so many organizations, we struggled to translate our culture/reason for being/ secret sauce into something that would be compelling, motivating and understood by our target audience. I didn’t know if it was possible, but Scott made it happen. He’s the furthest thing from our target audience one could possibly be, but somehow he understood us and -more importantly- understood them better than anyone has before."
VP Marketing, Capella University
"In my experience, creative directors tend to fall into one of two categories. They either are strong conceptually but lack the technical skill and patience to execute well or are not as strong conceptually but execute very well. Scott is a rare exception. He does both extremely well. What's more, he's easy and fun to work with."
