Scott Ashley, Senior Business Advisor
WorkSmart strives to be the premier provider in Information Technology services. With colleagues like Scott, this initiative is possible.
Scott joined the Charlotte team in 2009 and since then has helped grow the company’s client-base in the region. His colleagues have noted that he’s an effective motivator, as he starts new clients off from a point of “results-oriented positivity;” clients are expecting greatness which requires WorkSmart to perform to that expectation! Since he has a exceptional ability to understand clients’ needs, Scott is able to customize WorkSmart’s services for each particular client. In addition to being a strong contender for WorkSmart’s Salesperson of the Year, he’s also hoping that Cam Newtown (Carolina Panther’s quarterback) is all he’s cracked up to be.
“Scott always has a positive and upbeat attitude around the office,” commented WorkSmart’s General Manager in Charlotte, Greg Miller. “It is infectious and well appreciated by fellow team members and clients.”
