Scott Reid
Executive Creative Director, Geometry Global

After bombing out of a career as a freelance nail polish tester and part-time Muay Thai fighter, Scott sought out a more lucrative opportunity as a chimney sweep in Rangoon (now Yangon). As it turns out he wasn't terribly good at it, so he turned to advertising and marketing instead. Since then, Scott has developed award-winning campaigns for some of the world's biggest brands, including Coca-Cola, GlaxoSmithKline, Campbell's, T-Mobile, Pfizer, Colgate-Palmolive, and General Mills. He believes that too often the business of marketing runs counter to the humans that ultimately buy things; and it's a focus on those people in all their complexity that will lead to growth for everyone.
