    “Scott has an intricate understanding of our company and the industry.”
    “He is very responsive and efficient.”


    "My client philosophy is a life philosophy, something I take from my parents’ earliest teachings and from Atticus Finch when he said: “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.” I try to put myself in our clients’ shoes. Yes, these are clients. They are also people, with hopes, challenges, anxieties, ambitions and opportunities. I want to understand their world, so that what matters to them matters to me, and becomes my job. I’m not the important one: the client is. Knowing the client, I can best deliver on an unqualified commitment to service."
