Evan Scott


Evan Scott, President was one of the founding partners of ESGI. Established in 2000, Mr. Scott brought many years of retained search experience to the company. Prior to helping establish ESGI, Mr. Scott was the Senior Partner and second employee with a retainer-based executive search firm where he spent 21 years.

When Mr. Scott sold his shares in that firm, the company was listed as the 23rd largest search firm in the country with four offices and 125 employees. His mission upon opening ESGI’s doors has been to bring personalized attention and sophisticated executive search experience to the firm’s clients.

With nearly three decades of experience, Mr. Scott has helped numerous systems integrators, high-tech software and services companies, and small government contractors hire top-level executive talent. His clients have included blue-chip companies such as Lockheed Martin, Oracle, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Adobe, Unisys and SRA International. He has helped them fill positions ranging from the Board of Directors and corporate officers such as the CEO, COO and CFO to directors of federal operations, business development, sales, and a host of other executive positions. Mr. Scott brought the first diversity nominees to such clients as SRA International and CNT (now Brocade Communications Systems).

Mr. Scott’s expertise and network of connections in the government market—built through years of experience—have made him a trusted counselor who can ensure that executive searches strengthen his clients’ strategic positioning and goals within this market.
