Scott entered the financial service industry in 2003 as a college intern with Northwestern Mutual Financial. Following his internship, Scott spent the next five years working insane hours, building a network of professionals, and traversing Northern Ohio to build a business from scratch. In grinding it out in little Canton, Ohio, he found himself recognized annually in his five years as one of the top young advisors in the states.
Thrust forward by a radical vision and a stubborn entrepreneurial attitude, Scott picked up and moved on to hang his own shingle in establishing The Affinity Group in 2009. The vision: merge the idea of exceptional client experience and financial planning, left untouched by other firms. In Scott's words, "our clients need us to build them a financial life GPS, create a trusted group of other professionals that we integrate with while addressing all areas of their financial life from banking, taxes, estate, insurance, investments, and more. So that's what we went out and built; we want our clients to focus on enjoying the fruits of their labor and live life well!"
Day-to-day, Scott meets with clients to create amazing experiences and successful outcomes in all their areas of planning. He overlooks all operations within the firm, as well as meeting with and advising the firm's current clients.
Scott and his wife, Automn, moved their roots to the tiny berg of Hartville, Ohio to take up some country-living with their cheer-leading daughter, Cydni, karate-ninja Cale, and their littlest member, Golden-Doodle Dash. During the warm weather you will find Scott either on his motorcycle, trying to figure out golf - 20 years in -, or traveling with his band of misfits: family and friends included.
Scott made it through his collegiate years at Malone University in Canton, Ohio in 2003 with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Arts. In other words, Scott is a licensed Investment Advisor Representative through the firms Registered Investment Advisor-Affinity Wealth LLC, while also holding his life, health, and variable insurance licenses through the state of Ohio.
