Board Profile: Sanford Scott

Managing human resources—attracting, training and retaining successful talent.
What is the last book you read? 
The House of Morgan (An American Banking Dynasty and the Rise of Modern Finance) by Ron Chernow
What is your favorite quote or proverb?  
“It is not about working harder. It is about working smarter.”
What do you like about being a part of Provident leadership?  
I believe in hiring great management talent and then allowing them to manage and grow an organization. Provident’s management and focus has come a long way in the last 15 years since I have been on the Board and it is gratifying to see the organization where it is today.
How is Provident uniquely positioned to make a difference in St. Louis?  
Provident’s rich legacy of over 160 years of service to the St. Louis community is a shining example for others to see. Its behavioral health focus and commitment to the under-served is more relevant today than ever before.
