Scott is a serial entrepreneur who has owned a dozen small businesses. He understands what it takes to start and grow a business, including both independent and franchise operations. He has used business brokers to buy and sell a small business and brings this invaluable perspective to sellers embarking on a journey that is often the culmination of a life’s work.

Scott previously pursued dual careers. He retired as a Captain of the U.S. Navy Reserve after 30 years of honorable service. As a helicopter pilot he sailed on ships of the Pacific Fleet and was forward deployed to the Persian Gulf for Operations Desert Shield/Storm. After active duty, Scott commanded five Navy Reserve units and was recalled to active duty for Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. In his civilian career Scott is a self-styled “transportation guy” with experience in all modes of transportation. He built a diverse transportation services company that operated two shortline freight railroads and provided ancillary services in track and bridge repair, locomotive and railcar maintenance, and supply chain logistics. Prior to his rail industry stint, he was head of sales and marketing for two international aviation services companies.

He applies all the best practices of the Project Management industry in achieving the goals of business owners he represents – getting the best value in the most confidential manner and closing the sale of your business.
