He left GE Capital Network Services after a merger with GE IT Solutions North America in order to go to work in the same role with Steve’s new company Bay Data Consultants right before the Dot-com Revolution exploded on the world. Scott made huge strides with Bay Data, and with his ability to create and maintain relationships, he was able to bring Bay Data its largest account and one of the first Dot-com powerhouses in the United States in Endeavor Technologies which transitioned and changed its name to WebMD within a couple months of bringing in the account. He had his own office at WebMD’s Headquarters in Atlanta, worked directly with WebMD’S Founders and Executive team, and was responsible for their complete technology build out over the next 4 years which proved to be the solid foundation needed to make WebMD what it is today.
Bay Data Consultants was acquired by legendary NFL Hall of Fame running back Gayle Sayers company out of Chicago, and the WebMD account was one of the big reasons that acquisition was made possible as well as the leadership from his mentor, Steve Johnson. As Scott continued to make huge strides with WebMD, Bay Data then merged with ITC DeltaCom to become Edeltacom. At that point, Scott decided it was time to leave to start his own Technology Company, Cloudscapes Consulting, Inc. in 2001.
With his focus on team building and integrity, his 20+ years of experience in the technology industry, as well as advising and sitting on boards of several start-ups, Scott has been an extremely valuable asset in a leadership role for all organizations that he has been involved with. Scott is founder, President/CEO of Cloudscapes Consulting, Inc and currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
