“When I entered the accounting field, I found that I really liked to improve the inner working of a company, so the operations team could focus more on growth than on the day-to-day business. I am passionate about growing businesses and want the business—and the owners—who work hard and take good risks to succeed.” Impact CFO Services Founder, Scott Belt
Scott grew up on a century dairy farm outside of Yamhill, Oregon, providing him with daily insight on how a successful business operates.
“Everything we do in life influences who we are and what we do. I started to work and manage projects and teams at a very young age.
“I learned a lot about being a leader and how to problem solve. I learned that what I was doing was only part of the process and that my work affected my future work or the work of others, and there were consequences for not completing a task correctly or on time. There are few if any shortcuts in life and the most important thing is that we are all on a team working toward one goal.”
Scott has worked in a variety of industries and has years of experience speaking the language of banks, financial institutions, governmental agencies, and CPA firms.
“Before starting Impact, I most recently served as the Chief Financial Officer for Elite Care Management in Portland, Oregon, with more than 150 employees and more than 10 million in revenue.
“Business owners are often inundated with ‘noise’ that distracts them from really pushing their business forward. I can provide the financial and analytical services and skills that help people practically plan and realize their goals.”
Scott holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and minor in Mathematics from Linfield College. He is a certified public accountant in the state of Oregon. He also is a member of the Oregon Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Scott serves as a board advisor for the Executive Leadership Organization and as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society–OSWIM Chapter. In his free time, Scott enjoys spending time with his family, skiing, golfing, and making barbecue classics on his Traeger grill.Return To Our Team
