L. Scott Schultz, President – While building a successful career in development, marketing and government service, Scott Schultz envisioned a non-traditional consulting firm to help nonprofit organizations meet their distinctive challenges.

Scott left government service to work as Director of Development for the Buffalo Zoological Society, and from 1979 to 1987, he served as Vice President for Marketing and Development at the Zoological Society of Philadelphia. During his tenure, Scott was responsible for all aspects of contributed and earned income and experienced firsthand the value of integrating the powerful functions of management, marketing and development in order to maximize success. Under Scott’s leadership, the Zoo became the most visited and widely supported cultural institution in the region.
