Meet a valued member of our Spinnaker team of experts: Director Scott Mainwaring. Spinnaker’s Results Rainmaker, Scott has a proven track record of achievement, driving business growth as well as significant customer experience improvements. With a background including leading teams of all sizes — from a few to a few thousand — he enjoys being part of the small, smart, and nimble Spinnaker team of experts, which ensures he can get hands-on with client projects in ways that maximize impact and add the most value.

An experienced leader with a laser focus on outcomes, Scott leverages his strong background in P&L management, Six Sigma, project management, and analytics to consistently deliver impressive results. Always up for a new challenge, he excels at leading operations with a high level of complexity and scale. In fact, it’s the idea of achieving what’s possible that swings his feet out of bed each morning. At the end of the day, ensuring his client is successful is the greatest reward.

Scott is known as a versatile professional who always gets the job done. He has also developed a reputation as a bit of a MacGyver — a master fixer who achieves the impossible by combining ingenuity and intellect with a creative approach to resources and a healthy dose of grit. Lucky for Spinnaker, it’s a not-so-secret superpower that comes in handy solving problems in the office as well as out.
