Partner, Chief Operating Officer
Scot is one of the partners of MiddleGround where he is Chief Operating Officer. Scot started his career at Toyota Motor Corporation and spent 13 years in assembly engineering, maintenance, and production management. Prior to founding MiddleGround, Scot spent 9 years at the prior firm with John and Lauren, most recently serving as Director of Operations. Scot received a Toyota Fellowship to attend the University of Kentucky where he earned degrees in Mechanical Engineering and a Masters of Engineering in Manufacturing Systems.
Scot has recently become an empty nester as his twin children are enrolled in college although his wife, Susan, would say they still have 2 “children” (i.e. dogs) at home. He and his wife enjoy implementing lean manufacturing initiatives throughout their home. Scot made the mistake of singing karaoke in front of John Stewart one night in Japan where he sang “My Cherie Amour” by Stevie Wonder. According to John, this is now the official song of MiddleGround Capital.
