Scott Peetz, CPA*
I grew up in St. Louis, and I attended the University of Missouri (MIZ!) - where I obtained my Master's degree in accounting and completed my CPA exams. After graduation, I moved to Denver to start my career in PwC's audit practice.
While at PwC, I worked on a mix of public and private jobs - primarily investment funds and real estate clients. As a senior associate, I had the opportunity to take a wholistic view at our audits to revamp for improved quality and efficiency. I enjoyed developing automation solutions to refine procedures, and I also enjoyed heading up valuation fieldwork over real estate properties, derivatives, and private equity investments. I am grateful for the people I met and the rapid learning experiences I gained at PwC, but I realized that I did not see myself in audit long term. I am very passionate about solving problems and improving processes, which is why I am eager to grow my career at Embark!
Outside of work, I like spending time with my wife, Kayla, and our golden retriever pup, Larry. We have recently become avid home renovators and dog trainers all at once. In my free time, my main hobbies include everything relating to sports and the outdoors. One of the main reasons I moved out to Colorado was to be closer to the mountains for great hiking and skiing. It has not let me down. I also especially enjoy soccer, golf, tennis, basketball and any type of yard game.
