President / CEO
Ever wonder where our culture of unstoppable problem solving comes from? Meet Scott, and you’ll know. For more than 30 years Scott has been pushing all of us to be our very best. As CEO, Scott plays a strategic role in nearly every agency account and holds key relationships with many of the region’s best-known organizations. Scott is passionate about community service and serves on the boards of Xcel Energy, the Sioux Falls Development Foundation, the National Music Museum, Sioux Empire United Way, the South Dakota Symphony and many other regional causes. He is the driving force behind the agency’s “outthink, outdo” culture, leading our teams while whistling classic rock and setting the bar for enthusiasm. He’s also the author of The Leader of the Band, a book of valuable leadership lessons from his early career as a high school band director in Marion and Wakonda, SD. Today, he considers L&S his band and loves how he gets to “direct a different piece of music every day.” Scott earned his BFA from the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, SD.
