We talk a lot as a company about our “one-team” mentality, and for good reason, but as essential to any workplace culture is the recognition of individual achievements. With that in mind, we are thrilled to share some recent news from Puget Sound Business Journal.
Scott Leber, the firm’s chief strategy officer and managing director of our Seattle office, is among the 2018 class of 40 Under 40 honorees. The list, which marks its 20th anniversary this year, highlights leaders in business, philanthropy, government, and health care, among other sectors.
Here’s a preview of Scott’s Q&A session with the Journal:
Who has had the greatest influence on your leadership style?
My Stanford soccer coach, Bobby Clark. There are two quotes he used to say that have stayed with me. The first is, “The strength of the wolf is in the pack, and the strength of the pack is in the wolf.” The second was, “Focus on the wee things and the results will take care of themselves.”
A former professional soccer player, Scott founded, built, and sold two companies before joining Brighton Jones in 2015. During the three years he has led our company-wide growth strategy, Brighton Jones has emerged as the largest RIA in Washington State. Scott also chaired our corporate philanthropy group for the past two years, helping focus our donations, increase our volunteer efforts, and redesign our employee matching and PTO program.
Beyond Brighton Jones, Scott is a founding board member of Seattle’s Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) chapter and was intimately involved in establishing a presence here in the Puget Sound for PCA. He helps facilitate conversations and meetings with local major sports teams (such as the Seattle Sounders) to raise seed money for the new chapter.
Congrats to Scott!
