Get to know Scott

Scott founded Training The Street in 1999 with the desire to combine his passion for finance and his love of teaching. In addition to his responsibilities as CEO and principal, Scott is an instructor, oversees content innovation for TTS, and is a lead relationship manager for the firm. Scott began his professional career as an analyst with Merrill Lynch´s M&A group in New York. After gaining transactional experience in a broad range of industries and with a wide spectrum of clients, Scott decided to draw more directly on his teaching gifts. He began working with Merrill´s Analyst and Associate Investment Banking Training Programs, ultimately becoming the lead instructor, content administrator, and manager. After Merrill, Scott felt a calling to contribute more directly to society and taught at The Field School in Washington, D.C., where he also coached several sports teams. Recognizing a need for analysts to gain a better grasp of financial modeling and corporate valuation, Scott decided to build on his classroom teaching experience and founded TTS to meet a rising demand for high-quality, hands-on instruction in the application of finance theory through real-world simulation.
