Managing Director, Boston, Bain Capital Ventures

Back to Network →

Scott joined Bain Capital Ventures in 2006 after selling the company he co-founded, ProfitLogic, to Oracle. ProfitLogic was the leader in the world of retail analytics and price optimization solutions. Through the experience of building ProfitLogic from its initial three founders to a 300 person global software and solutions business serving the retail industry, Scott had the opportunity to get to know many of the most influential executives in the retail and apparel brand world. Not surprisingly, Scott’s areas of investment interest since joining BCV, have revolved around retail and retail related technology, both online and offline, as well as the convergence of the two, and he finds himself splitting time between New York City and Boston. 

Scott received an MBA, with distinction, from Harvard Business School and a BA, magna cum laude, in Electrical Engineering and Economics from Brown University.
