My name is Scott Sweeten and I am a new Digital Marketing Analyst here at Progrexion Marketing. I have now been with Progrexion for about a month and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to come and work here. The atmosphere and co-workers here have been exactly what I was looking for in a new employer. Many thanks go to my team who have all been extremely helpful and supporting during this period of transition.
I am originally from Sacramento, CA and my family moved here when I was about 10 years old. Since then I have always lived along the Wasatch Front here in Utah. I am a graduate of the University of Utah (Go Utes!) and I am a big time sports fan. I am an especially big San Francisco 49’ers and Giants fan as those were the teams I grew up watching in California. I am a big proponent of being active, and my favorite sport to play is definitely volleyball.
I graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology. Throughout college I worked in both healthcare and banking. When I graduated I decided to pursue a career in something financial, and I worked at Fidelity Investments for almost 3 years. I worked in their high net worth department, taking care of investment needs for the company’s most valuable personal investors. I still have my active brokerage licenses. I then went to work at Goldman, Sachs, and Co. as an Analyst in the OTC Equity Derivatives department. I mainly dealt with large derivatives trades being executed by hedge funds.
Right now you may be wondering what a guy like me is doing working here. After several years of working in the trading industry I decided it was time for a change of pace. I was then referred to a job posting online for Progrexion and was fascinated by the online marketing machine that is Google. I believe that online marketing will continue to play a more and more important role in our everyday lives as everything around us becomes more integrated and connected through the digital world. I also love that Progrexion is in a financial services industry based around helping people achieve their dreams through improving their personal credit situation. I am excited to be working for such a great company surrounded by such great people!
