Scott joined the Signature Financial family in early 2021 as a Partner through a merger with Marbury Wealth Management, a firm he established after leaving a senior position at Arthur Andersen in the Private Wealth Group in 2000.
During college, Scott gravitated to economics and finance and had several internships in the field of finance, earning his BS in Economics and Minor in Mathematics from Allegheny College. He earned the CFP® designation in 1993, and added the CAP® (Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy) in 2015, intent on helping others ensure their legacy and maximizing the impact of philanthropy in his community to create a better place to live for generations to come.
Scott leverages 32 years of experience in the industry to help bring a sense of financial “peace” to his clients. After learning what concerns keep them up at night, he analyzes the issues, develops comprehensive strategies, and implements action items to set a course towards their goals. Having learned from great mentors and with decades of experience working with a diverse clientele of private business owners, physicians, corporate executives, charitable foundations, and many others, Scott is uniquely qualified to address a wide range of financial concerns and goals.
Working with a holistic approach to wealth management, Scott takes on the role of “quarterback” and works closely with other advisors, CPAs, Attorneys, Private Banking Representatives, and more.
While Scott was born in Seattle, WA, he’s been a Pittsburgher since the age of 2, where he currently resides with his wife Maureen and their college-bound twins, Aidan and Sophia.
Scott plays the piano, trombone and has sung in many choirs over the years. He once performed with his church handbell team at the White House for President Reagan.
A chat with Scott
What do you like best about being part of the Signature Financial Planning family?
The camaraderie and teamwork in the firm’s culture is really a positive experience for team members and will translate in a positive way for our clients.
How do you want clients to view their wealth?
Building wealth and distributing wealth for personal needs and/or personal causes is a marathon not a sprint.
What are your biggest accomplishments?
I would say starting my own business, Marbury Wealth Management, over 20 years ago. My wife had a successful event planning business when we were married, and it allowed me to take that risk, leave my senior position at Arthur Andersen in the Private Wealth Group in 2000, and begin my own firm.
What do you love to do outside of work?
Personally, I enjoy golfing as an outside activity. I also have enjoyed going to my children’s activities with Maureen over the last decade, but they will both be in college this fall.
What are you passionate about in your personal life?
I love to laugh and see my wife, Maureen, and my 18 year old twins, Aidan and Sophia, happy.
What is your most memorable travel experience?
Traveling to South Africa, definitely.
