Tim Scott is the Chief Financial Officer at The Horton Group, one of the 50th largest brokers in the United States. As CFO, Tim is responsible for overall financial management of the company including financial performance reporting, budgeting and long-range planning. Tim plays a key role on the senior management team in setting the strategic direction of Horton.

Tim views his role as an opportunity to build on Horton's existing foundation of strong financial leadership and invest in a culture that supports high growth and drives revenue to ultimately create a long-term strategic advantage.
“A company's greatest asset is its employees,” said Tim. “Horton's success is driven by people who are open to new ideas, yet all focused on the same goals. Everyone here is on the same page. I'm excited to be part of it and look forward to developing innovative growth strategies that will support our organizational goals.”
