“Scotty joins the Symmetrix team at an important time in the company’s growth,” says John Barnitt, President of Symmetrix Composite Tooling. “His deep understanding of composite materials and tooling design, along with his business and project management skills, will allow us to continue to offer exceptional customer service to our growing list of clients as we expand our capabilities and capacity.”
In his new capacity of Vice President, Scott will work with our existing clients as well as in business development. Scott brings an extensive background in composites technology to the Symmetrix team. He was most recently Chief Operating and Technical Officer of the Southern Spars Group and President of its Future Fibres LLC division. During his career with Southern, which included previous positions as lead engineer and division manager, Scott not only designed innovative composite structures using a variety of materials and methods but was instrumental in the business becoming an industry-leading global brand. His significant projects included the development and commercialization of the highly successful and game-changing ECsix carbon rigging product, and more recently the expansion of their composites manufacturing expertise in Sri Lanka.
“Coming from a business where customers put an equally high value on fit and form as well as function, I know that the success of any composite manufacturing process begins with good tooling,” says Scott. “Symmetrix clients leverage a commitment to technology, craftsmanship, and service that I look forward to helping bring to a wider audience.”
Scott has an engineering degree in Naval Architect from the New York Maritime College. The competitive sailing community knows him as the long-time bowman for Dennis Conner’s America’s Cup campaigns. He lives with his family in Rhode Island.
