Scott Reynolds serves as Vice Chair for the WDB’s Board of Directors. Here is a little bit about Scott, both personally and professionally.
Why did you join the Board? I have been a member of the Board of Directors of Solano EDC for over 15 years. During the first years, the Board received regular reports from the President/Executive Director. Ten years ago, I decided I wanted to learn more about the organization and promote its mission - and what better way to do so than join!
What is a typical day for you? I usually start work around 6:45 am and finish around 5:30 pm. My day is filled with client phone calls and meetings, document drafting for business and estate planning matters, and attending to management of the law firm. And, I always get in a work out at the gym
If you were given $500,000 to invest in workforce what would you invest in and why? I would invest the money to better promote and expand WBDs jobs training program, specifically for those displaced workers whose skills/experience no longer meet the ever-changing needs of employers and for those workers who want to upgrade their skills in order to seek a better career. These services are currently provided by WDB - but they are a hidden resource in our community.
What do I enjoy most about the WDB? The diversity of members of the Board, the professionalism of the staff and the opportunity to learn.
What was the last book you read? John Grisham’s The Guardians.
