“[Scott’s] understanding and knowledge of the local community and politics made him an invaluable asset to my team. Equally impressive is Scott’s global experience in public affairs and communications, which is critical to a multinational corporation.”

Jennifer Linker, Senior Director, Federal Affairs, ExxonMobil

“Following the incident on the MAERSK ALABAMA with Somali pirates, Scott’s advice on media and public relations proved extremely helpful. The fact that he was in the region when the incident occurred, his insights into Maritime Security Operations and his Fifth Fleet experience provided valuable crisis communications resources for us.”


Erik L. Johnsen, President, International Shipholding Corporation

“A small company successfully permitting an offshore LNG terminal is a challenge unto itself, but doing so in the Gulf of Mexico during the midst of the Deepwater Horizon incident after other multi-national organizations have already failed is almost impossible. There is no question that Scott’s guidance throughout our project was a key factor in our successful permitting of the Bienville Offshore Energy Terminal. Scott served as a key advisor to our senior management team, and his insight into the emotions, politics, and potential pitfalls at the local and state levels was always spot on.”


Joe Berno, former President/CEO, TORP Technology

“Scott was an invaluable member of our public affairs efforts in Iraq and excelled as a strategic communications expert leading our Media Operations Center during a period of intense international media interest. Scott has the skill and insights to manage complex issues, providing strategic counsel and hands on management. He’s simply one of the best — a real pro.”


Rear Admiral Greg Smith, USN (Ret.)

“Scott was a great help to journalists when he was based in Baghdad. He used to go out of his way to try to find the information that a journalist was looking for, balancing the public’s need to know with operational security.”
