Scott joined CDK Global on October 7, 2019. He is accountable for strategic planning and execution for the CDK dealer management system agnostic offerings which include CRM, Service, Desking, Menu, F&I, Inventory, Credit Services and Layered Apps.
Scott joins CDK from Austin-based Epicor Software Corporation, where he most recently served as head, automotive and business products.

Scott successfully led the company to growth, and in 2012, the company was purchased by Epicor.
