Meet Our People: Scott
Mechanical Engineering Group Leader
I'm proud to work at Monsanto because of the strong core values here and the commitments that our company and leadership have made. Among those, the vision of providing important benefits to the world through increased food production, transparency and openness of our company’s intent, high standards in business ethics and product stewardship, and world-class leadership in quality, safety and environmental responsibility.
As group leader, I’m responsible for planning and assigning mechanical resources and monitoring engineering progress on the forty or more projects that are typically in some stage of execution. My main goal is to make sure that these projects are completed within the timeframe needed by our businesses, as well as using best available engineering technology as cost effectively as possible.
I work with my group to make sure they are obtaining appropriate professional development as they build their careers, as there is much technical proficiency and on the job training required with any engineering role. I also direct the group’s efforts in establishing and maintaining mechanical engineering standards. These standards serve the dual purpose of establishing Monsanto’s high level of performance expectations and avoidance of duplication of effort on each new project.
