Get to Know Scott

"I am a U.S. Army Veteran who served eight years as an Engineer Officer in Heavy Infantry and Armored units before finishing my career as the Deputy Department Head of the Purdue Army ROTC program and I am still serving as a reservist drilling out of Butler, PA. I gained a variety of experience in leadership in large and small organizations, project management, and logistics while I served. I also had the fortunate pleasure of working with our recruiting and marketing at Purdue which got me interested in pursuing that interest while here at the Tepper School.

"I am in the Managing Innovation and Product Development (MIPD) track and am working toward concentrations in Marketing, Finance, and Strategy. I am the Marketing Executive Officer for the GBA and one of the Vice Presidents of Admissions for the Tepper Veterans Association.

"My original interest in the Tepper School came from its robust quantitative curriculum as well as its emphasis on leadership. Additionally, being from Youngstown, OH I am close to my family in Ohio which is a great perk of being in Pittsburgh. I like Pittsburgh because of its culture, food and its many fantastic parks and my hobbies include fitness, hiking, and sports."
