A Georgia native, Scott was born in Columbus but most of his time has been spent living right here in the Atlanta area. His formal education led him to attend Lyman Ward Military Academy in Camp Hill, AL and R.L. Osborne High School in Marietta, GA. After high school he was accepted to the Musicians Institute of Technology in Hollywood, California.
Once his time in Hollywood was complete, he had the opportunity to follow his dream of being a touring & recording drummer in several well known rock bands. “Traveling and playing all over the world was a boyhood dream of mine. I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything” says Scott.
The birth of Specialty Spray Systems began early in 2007. After the company he had worked for closed its doors. Scott had a conversation with his Grandfather about starting his own business. After much debate Scott’s grandfather gave him a check for $4,500 to buy his first machine with along with the words “I believe in you”. SSS was born.
The words “I believe in you” are what propel Specialty Spray Systems forward. “Knowing that you company believes in you and supports you means the world to those who are on the receiving end of that encouragement. Those words have certainly changed my life” says Scott.
Always pushing the limits to what is possible not just in business but in personal areas as well, Scott has achieved the rank of second degree black belt’s in Ryukyu Kempo & Jujitsu along with a first degree black belt in Small Circle Jujitsu. Most of his time now can be found running marathons, triathlons & obstacle races along with golf and pretty much anything outdoors.
As far as the future goes, “My ultimate goal is to create a foundation that will allow me to build an institution that can teach and create the entrepreneurs of tomorrow because entrepreneurs are the solution to most of the world’s problems I believe” says Sellers.
Scott now lives in Woodstock, GA with his wife Heather. They travel to new and exciting parts of the world every chance they get.
