Scott began his accountancy career as a trainee auditor and although he enjoyed the discipline of accounting he decided that he did not want to focus on purely auditing companies but instead preferring the ‘hands on’ input into the day to day financial aspects of running companies.
He joined a subsidiary of transport company First Group as Finance Assistant where he quickly progressed to the position of Company Accountant. After gaining valuable experience with the successful PLC he decided to leave the corporate world and moved into the SME sector as Finance Manager for an owner-managed construction and refurbishment company.
This fuelled his desire to start his own business and together with a colleague he formed an interior workplace consultancy company which they successfully grew and developed for a number of years before successfully exiting.
Scott has significant experience with new start companies including as Finance Director of a software development company with interests in the USA, Spain and Ukraine from which he exited after the successful merger of the business with an international mobile marketing company.
Prior to joining Safe As Houses, Scott was Financial Accountant for a property development company undertaking a unique multi million pound international leisure/residential development within the UK, enabling him to broaden his construction experience.
Scott joined Safe As Houses as Finance Director using his extensive knowledge of new start businesses to ensure that the company’s finance, management systems and processes were developed with scalability in mind. As the company continued its rapid growth Scott found himself becoming more involved in the operational aspects of the business and has now transitioned to the role of Operations Director.
When he has some spare time, Scott enjoys cycling, watching football, and socialising.
