Upon relocating from California to Oregon, Scott joined the KDP Advisory team in February 2021. He has more than 20 years of experience in many areas of accounting and finance, with a significant focus on financial reporting, budgeting, internal controls, policy/procedure development and project management.
Scott obtained a B.S. in Accounting from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona and obtained his CPA license while employed by Coopers & Lybrand (now Price Waterhouse Coopers, a “Big 4” International CPA firm) in Newport Beach, California where he served in an attestation/audit role on a variety of publicly-traded clients in the technology, manufacturing, healthcare and real estate industries. After leaving Coopers & Lybrand, Scott spent many years in Controllership related roles with both large and smaller (publicly traded and privately held) companies in the entertainment, restaurant/hospitality and manufacturing industries among others.
In his downtime, Scott enjoys spending time with his family, listening to music (especially live), hiking, riding dirt bikes and four-wheelers, as well as cooking and entertaining.
