Born and raised in San Diego, California, Scott Leyland joined TargetSolutions’ Client Services team this past April. A recent graduate of San Diego State University with a bachelor’s degree in economics, Scott found the opening for a Client Services Representative via Google Maps in what turned out to be a case of “X marks the spot.” Intrigued, he immediately applied for the position.
Upon arriving to his interview, Regional Sales Manager Steve Walsh informed Scott that his collar was crooked. After fixing what became known as the Collar Incident, Scott interviewed with five TargetSolutions team members and was confident that this was the right fit for him. In his own words, Scott has “enjoyed working for a company that has a lot of great people who are willing to help.”
Scott is looking forward to learning how customers use TargetSolutions’ services in order to further understand their needs so he can better assist them.
