Scott Brenner

Sales Manager

I’m excited to help roll out Justin’s vision and build a foundation for the future… I think great companies are able to adapt and evolve to either stay ahead or manage with the changing of time.

Scott began working with Stephen Gould in the New England branch over 23 years ago and has co-managed the Illinois office with Mark Silver since 2002. He thrives on mentoring and provides leadership for a team of 20. He has developed his branch by expanding its product engineering and retail design capabilities, while recruiting young talent from marketplaces like local colleges and universities. Scott enjoys the diversity and complexity that each day brings in Chicago’s “limitless opportunity for stimulating work,” and is excited for new opportunities to collaborate with other branches to deliver strategic solutions for our clients.
