Chief Operating Officer
Great teams work and win as one. In his role as COO and in leading the PepsiCo business, Scott empowers his teams to succeed by enabling true collaboration. This collaborative culture ensures different types of thinking are fused together to uncover unique solutions that drive our clients’ businesses forward.
Scott has 20 years of experience, working closely with industry-leading brands such as Verizon, P&G and The Home Depot. To bring his vision of true collaboration to life, Scott has developed a "community-based" team structure for PepsiCo, in lieu of the previously siloed industry norms. This has been done based on the belief that inspiring ideas can and do come from anywhere in the business. In this evolved approach, Business Leads work together to strategize, ideate, implement and measure, bringing the right expertise forward at the right time to solve specific client challenges.
Scott holds himself and his team to a higher standard. He is focused on pushing the boundary when it comes to communication approaches and processes - never being satisfied with the status-quo. As a testament to his leadership and the power of a unified team, the PepsiCo team has won over 60 industry awards over a two-year period.
