Scott Watson

Co-Founder, Principal & Consultant

Scott has served clients in the executive search industry for over 30 years. Known for his candor and clarity of focus, our clients appreciate Scott’s insights married with his sense of humor and resolute attention to mission success. Scott brings a unique blend of skills to senior level searches he leads or co-leads. An indicator of success and appreciation relative to client experience and deliverables in any business relationship is repeat business —how many times you are invited back to lead engagements for the same client. Scott has clients for whom he has led over 15 unique searches over a 3-year period for the same organization. He has orchestrated initiatives for land grant institutions, and higher education organizations with and without academic health sciences components.

Beyond higher education institutions, Scott’s three decades of executive search includes serving the leadership needs of hospital/health systems, global software and technology companies, private equity enterprises, MCO’s, insurance companies, service and manufacturing organizations with global footprints, and others. He has placed executives in key mission critical roles across the ‘C-Suite’ and board room, including top leaders of diversity, and brings a “fit” and ROI perspective to institutions and organizations seeking to establish a competitive advantage by securing superior human capital.

Outside of his search responsibilities and over the past 20 years, Scott enjoys sports car racing and high performance driving instruction.
