After serving more than thirty-five years as a senior corporate executive and principal of a premiere human resources consulting firm, Scott Coolidge now assists clients in career transition as they discern and execute purposeful next seasons. Combining his executive and coaching experience, deep compassion for others, and sophisticated knowledge of human behavior, he helps clients successfully transition from one season or career to new roles, board work, consulting, teaching, not-for-profit engagement, personal interests, or a portfolio of varied activities. Scott’s inquisitive nature and his core belief in his clients’ ability to be introspective and creative are central to his approach to supporting them as they face transition.
Scott spent thirteen years at Freddie Mac where he served as Senior Vice President of Human Resources and played a pivotal role in developing and implementing talent management strategies to assist the organization in navigating the turbulent waters of the most recent financial crisis. As a Partner at Towers Perrin, a major human resources consulting firm, Scott’s responsibilities included new business development, client relationship management, and delivery of innovative solutions to clients’ human capital, total rewards, and compensation challenges.
