Scott learned the importance of authenticity during his time as the Global Digital & Multimedia Communications Manager for Ford Motor Company from 2008-2014. You might recall this wasn’t exactly the most stellar time in the auto industry. Scott joined Ford as it was struggling to even survive as a company during the Great Recession.
