Scott believes, “Great companies are built around inspired, creative, hardworking and transparent people, teams and leadership. I’ve been fortunate to have worked for many successful companies with different cultures, strategies, and leadership styles. My greatest professional successes and work happiness have been derived in settings where leaders listen, act, trust, and enable their people and customers to do great things. I'm excited and honored to be Apogee's CEO.”
When relaxing, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife, Sharon, and daughters, Yumi and Cristina.
