Scott developed a passion for helping small and midsize companies with their finance function when he led due diligence efforts to acquire software companies for Trilogy Software. 9 out of 10 times the finance function was a disaster. The companies often struggled to produce quality financials let alone any forward-looking financials or KPI’s to help the business assess risks and opportunities.
He along with his co-founders began to dream about starting a company that focused solely on building the best performing finance function in the world. A company that would allow its clients to plug into a well-oiled finance and accounting machine vs. recreating the wheel and building finance functions from scratch in house. This passion and dream led to founding Consero Global Solutions and it’s what continues to drive the company forward today.
Scott has more than 20 years of direct finance and consulting experience with companies ranging in size from emerging technology businesses to Fortune 500 companies, including IBM. Prior to founding Consero, Scott was Director of Finance at Trilogy Software where he led efforts to build their off-shore finance team and led efforts to acquire and integrate over 15 acquisitions.
He holds an MBA from the University of Texas and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business from Rice University. It was at Rice where Scott played basketball for four years and where he credits his first lessons in team building.
Scott sits on the board of the Austin Technology Council, which is a non-profit organization focused on being the leading unifying voice for tech companies in Central Texas.
