SaddleUp Management Co.
Who we are
Scott C. Ferris, CITP
Founder & Lead Wrangler
Scott established the Saddle Up Management Company after spending his career in a mix of public and private sector engagements. His experiences cover all facets of international trade, marketing, communications and business development with more than 25 years experience in export sales planning, domestic and international business development, investment attraction, multi-sector communications, marketing campaign development, negotiations and partnership engagement as well as client engagement and membership development. Scott's early experiences in radio provided the foundations for his highly engaging public and media relations experience. His domestic and international experience stems from participating on and organizing more than 30 trade missions on four continents. Scott's professional expertise is accented with wide-ranging experience at the national, provincial and corporate level within associations, government and academia in the areas of opportunity assessment, commercialization, proposal structuring, licensing, market development, as well as teaching international trade in the corporate and college settings.
Scott's broad background enables him to bring proven skills in management, leadership and decision making. One of his key strengths is in understanding project scope, deliverables and working to reach results in the most direct and efficient way possible. As a small business owner himself, understanding the need to focus on your what you do best and getting others to step in where needed comes as second nature. Running your own company demands a high level of initiative and adaptability to rapidly changing demands and one of Scott's favourite sayings is an unofficial saying from the U..S Marines - Improvise, Adapt and Overcome.
A strong believer in community involvement, Scott volunteers with the RCMP Veterans Association P.E.I. Division, Canadian Forces Liaison Council, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 30 Kingston, PEI, Heart & Stroke Foundation, and Junior Achievement Canada.
