Director of Margin Excellence
Scott works to bring commercial transformation to our Global Emerging Markets organization, finding ways to help the company improve its profitability. So what’s the key to Scott’s success? An eye for detail? Statistical analysis? Launching new strategies?
In a word: communications.
"The secret is ensuring that avenues of communication between critical business functions are built and maintained," he said. "These bridges remove friction and allow for more effective decision making. I’ve seen it time and again – nothing beats good communication!"
Scott has worked in a variety of industries, including our Global Tools & Storage business, and has had roles in sales, marketing, eCommerce and commercial leadership. He’s also traveled around the globe, visiting more than 50 countries for work and for pleasure.
What he’s learned is the importance of good listening.
"You have to be open, listen and always be willing to learn and adjust to people," he said. "I think people of all backgrounds and stages of life have value to give, and I like to find that and connect to it."
So what does he like best about Stanley Black & Decker?
"I like working for an organization that seeks to be No. 1 or No.2 in every market it is in. That’s pretty exciting," he said. "And I like making a difference and the chance to have an impact – I feel like this company has given me opportunities to do that."
