Scott Tapp, President,
Chief Operating Officer
Scott leads the go-to-market and team member development functions at Trella. Passionate about creating and leading great teams, he also partners closely with our CEO and Board members to formulate and execute our corporate strategy, and implements operational best practices and metrics to scale and grow our business.
For 20 years, Scott guided rapidly growing companies to successful exits. Prior to joining Trella, he was managing director of SBI, a consulting firm advising PE-backed companies on growth acceleration. Before that, he was CEO of Software Brands, a fast-growing SaaS company providing software and payment solutions to small businesses.
He also held several leadership positions at PGi, a communications technology firm, where he helped grow the business to $560M in revenue and $140M EBITDA through organic growth and 24 acquisitions. He held multiple general manager roles, including the company’s SaaS division, which started from a small acquisition and quickly grew to over $100M in revenue when the company sold in 2015.
Scott started his career in investment banking and worked in two venture capital firms investing in early stage technology companies. He is a US Navy Veteran and graduated in Finance from the University of Georgia.
When he’s not cooking up new creations on his Green Egg, Scott enjoys kite and wake surfing, snow skiing, and fishing with his family, friends and yellow-lab Bailey.
