Scott, who earned a Bachelor's of Science in Horticulture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, enjoys the excitement and responsibility of overseeing sales and customer experience for the multiple departments at McAdam.
He has extensive knowledge of horticultural practices, plant pest/disease identification and treatment, and plant health care, enabling him to offer expert services that improve clients' landscapes. Since 2011, he has written the "Ask the Plant Expert" advertorial column that appears monthly in the Wednesday Journal of Oak Park and River Forest, among other local publications. Working primarily with commercial business clients, he uses his love of math and strategy to deliver products and services that are budget-driven and provide high quality results. Scott also enjoys building relationships with new and existing clients and tailoring services to best suit those clients. In the winter, he prepares McAdam for the uncertainty of winter weather and provides a framework for the entire team to execute efficient and timely service for its clients.
Outside of McAdam, he is the Vice President of the Board of Directors of the Illinois Landscape Contractors Association, where he assists in shaping policy for the state's landscape industry to support contractors. He is also the past chairman of the ILCA's Golf Outing Committee and liaison to the Snow and Young Professionals committees. He is a member of Chicago Scots and volunteers as co-chairman of their Kilted Classic Golf Tournament committee with continued goals of growth in attendance and revenue to support their charity. When not involved at work or other industry associations, he enjoys functional fitness, weightlifting, golfing, traveling, and spending time with his wife and daughter.
