Q&A with Scott

What did you do before you joined Dore?

I worked for a global recruitment firm managing and training a team of associates and hiring for a range of sophisticated investment management client firms.

What attracted you to the role at Dore?

Joining Dore was an obvious move because I believe in the firm’s ethos that being globally connected, and having a broader perspective on relevant trends, is the key to unlocking the best talent. The team at Dore is intellectually curious and doesn’t take itself too seriously which is a great plus in terms of the work culture.

“It’s rewarding to work alongside our clients, learning directly from them and studying their investment philosophy and culture”

What are the highlights of your work at Dore?

Engaging with the heavyweights of our industry, having the opportunity to learn directly from them and study their investment philosophy, company culture and objectives. We work hard to earn the trust and commitment of our client partners, and it’s rewarding to work alongside them in this way.

What have you learned through your career or through your time at Dore?

Dore promotes the learning and development of a robust and systematic search process that is thorough and exhaustive. This is coupled with a rigorous assessment framework. Together, these provide conviction to both us and the client in the outcome we arrive at together.

What has challenged you?

I think it’s important to be able to see the bigger picture – it’s easy to become caught in the flow of executing on multiple challenging searches simultaneously. The key to having an edge is being able to synthesize the information you learn along the way, and transform this into something truly insightful

What’s your most memorable moment so far?

Our company offsite really stands out. Spending time on the beach together in Greece and doing water sports was pretty special – and a great way to get to know everyone outside of the office.
