There he led a boutique consultancy focused on helping technology vendors develop customer-centered business strategies to create more sales-friendly marketing programs, resulting in more leverage in the sales process. He has worked closely with all of the relevant roles and stakeholders in the sales execution process, including CEO, CFO, sales, marketing, CTO, strategy, and business unit heads, resulting in a unique and holistic view into all of the cogs of an organization's value engine and how to bring the component parts together to maximize results. Throughout his 16-year career, he has held various sales and marketing positions including quota-carrying sales roles, product marketing and management, and sales leadership roles in organizations such as META Group and Allen Systems Group.
Scott has worked directly with more than 2,000 field-selling representatives across all major geographies and in software, services, and hardware companies. Comfortable in the boardroom or in the trenches, he is exceptionally adept at helping to architect positive change and is a popular speaker.
