Biography

Scott is a thought leader in the construction industry, combining his construction background, tech experience, entrepreneurial spirit and legal education to bring an unique perspective to a big problem in the industry: getting paid. Chasing money can be toxic and time consuming for small companies, and for large, it’s a critical component of a larger credit policy and risk mitigation plan. Scott educates the construction community about mechanics liens, bond claims, security instruments and other tools of credit management through blogs, publications and speaking engagements. His primary blog, the Lien and Credit Journal, has over 5000 subscribers and gets more than 170,000 page views monthly. Scott’s thought leadership is supported by his experience and qualifications. Scott is the founder of zlien, a venture-backed technology platform that reduces credit risk for suppliers and contractors through the management of lien rights. He guided zlien through a $500,000 seed round of financing and grown the company year-over-year to becoming a leader in the space. Scott consults with enterprise sized construction and building supply companies about credit risk and lien compliance. He is also a licensed attorney in five states, and former managing partner of the construction law firm Wolfe Law Group. He lives in New Orleans, and enjoys construction photography.
