Like most athletes, Scott Pullen has a competitive drive. He was on Wingate University’s cross country and track and field teams and served as captain from 2013 to 2015.
The competitive streak extends beyond the track, too. At Sherpa – where he worked as a staffing manager from late 2016 to 2018 – he won both “Peak Performer” and “Rookie of the Year” awards. By the end of his first year, he ranked second in the company for overall performance.
As a talent acquisition manager at MarketSource in Alpharetta, GA, Scott’s clients included Fortune 500 companies such as Google, HP, Target, and Dyson. Even in a large company – one with 140 recruiters – Scott stood out. He consistently ranked in the 10 percent.
After graduating from Wingate with a degree in sports management, Scott went on to earn an MBA from Shorter University in Rome, GA. He worked as a graduate assistant during that time, helping recruit student-athletes to the cross country team, managing the annual budget, and more.
Scott is more than a star athlete; he’s also a coach. He coached an NCAA national champion, six all-Americans, and five conference champions at Shorter University during the 2015-2016 academic year. He can also solve a Rubik’s Cube in fewer than 40 seconds.
