Scott serves as the CEO of Beyond Insurance. Founded in 2006, Beyond Insurance is a coaching and consulting firm that empowers insurance agency leaders, carriers, and other insurance and risk management professionals to capture unrealized potential… what one is capable of becoming through growth mindsets supported by process orientation. Scott has been recognized as one of the “25 Most Innovative Agents in America” by The National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research and also received The Franklin Award for outstanding achievement and contribution to the insurance industry in the Delaware Valley. Scott was a Philadelphia finalist for the “Entrepreneur of the Year Award,” sponsored by Inc. magazine, Ernst & Young, and Merrill Lynch. The Philadelphia Business Journal described the award as “the nation’s most prestigious recognition of successful business owners and the standards of excellence for the leaders of some of this region’s hottest entrepreneurial companies.” Nominations were based upon “ingenuity, hard work, and perseverance, which create a successful, growing business venture.” Scott is recognized as an industry thought-leader, transformational author, and speaker.

Scott previously served as founder and CEO of The Addis Group, which he started in 1990 from scratch: no carriers; no revenue. Only a $50,000 credit line and a vision of providing elite risk management solutions to the middle-market business segment. Today, The Addis Group (now part of McGriff Insurance Services) has evolved into one of the premier risk management consultants and insurance brokers in the United States.
