He comes to SPAR with 24 years of Retail Marketing/Service and CPG experience. Scott co-founded Serv Corp, Inc., one of the largest independent in-store marketing firms, merging with PromoWorks in 2005. There he led M&A and integration teams to support direct execution nationally for retail clients including Walmart, Safeway and Kroger. In 2009, he became SVP of Retail Sales and Operations for the Sunflower Group, where he was responsible for staffing operations, Distribution & Fulfillment, and national retail program management for Publix, Kroger and Super Target.
In 2011, Scott pursued his MBA focusing on Finance and Investment Banking to specialize in M&A and International Business. During this two year period, he obtained his Investment Banking license (Series 79 and 63), then acquired, turned around, and later sold IQ Reports LLC (BIS Insurance Services), a Regional Insurance Auditing firm, to York Insurance Services, a $400MM national firm.
After completing his MBA, Scott joined Advantage Sales & Marketing. While there, he was subsequently recruited to be CEO of ICC Capital, managing the company’s successful turnaround and coordinating a merger with Argent Financial, creating a financial firm with over $30 Billion in assets under management.
Prior to accepting his new role with SPAR Group, Scott was the Chief Commercial Officer of Suntree Snack Foods, a newly recapitalized private label provider of nuts, seeds and dried fruit.
Scott earned a BSBA from the University of Central Florida and his MBA from the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College. He enjoys supporting young entrepreneurs with consulting and early stage funding, and when not thinking about the next deal, he prefers to relax with family and travel with his wife.
