Before that, he spent over 20 years in the banking industry at various financial institutions after serving as a Captain in the U.S. Army.
Scott discovered his passion for real estate toward the end of his banking career after transferring to the real estate group at NewStar Financial to work out distressed loans following the 2008 crash. He gained valuable experience underwriting and managing a portfolio of loans for various types of commercial real estate, including anchored and unanchored retail, office, industrial/warehouse, and multi-family properties. In addition, Scott has successfully completed several single-family residential fix and flips.
At the Center for Real Estate, Scott intends to gain insights into large multi-family and subdivision developments and explore ideas on value-added zoning that may lead to opportunities to partner with local municipalities to create affordable housing. Scott also wants to study how technology, including big data and artificial intelligence, can increase efficiency, profitability, and improve decision-making in real estate.
