Scott Bakewell

Vice President of Sales

After serving honorably with the United States Army, Scott started his professional career in the Transportation and Logistics industry with Ryder. While working for Ryder Scott developed an interest in sales and landed in a Fleet Rental/Lease role where he was accountable for commercial growth across lower New England. Scott also spent a short amount of time with AMI leasing in the same capacity.
In 2002 Scott became Vice President at DAWG, Inc., an independent industrial distributor based in Connecticut. In this role Scott was tasked with driving profitable growth in several verticals including international sales, ecommerce and catalog sales. Scott was key in the rapid growth of the DAWG business and instrumental in the positioning the company for acquisition. “My short time at DAWG really helped me gain an understanding of small business. You must make quick bold decisions to move the needle. This was the best time of my career, I learned a lot and developed and entrepreneurial spirit. It really helps understand the needs of the independent distributors we service.”
In 2008 DAWG, Inc. was acquired by Brady Corporation. Scott remained in the role of VP of Sales for the DAWG business until it was eventually merged into Seton. Scott was tapped to handle National Accounts for this division and eventually asked to take the role of Sales Manager over the WPS division in 2013. Later that year, Scott elected to move to the Brady IDS business into the role of RSSM in the Northeast for SPC. Scott remained in this role until August 2017. Scott continued his success by building solid relationships with SPC distributors in the northeast showing year over year growth and profitability through share gains and new product launches.
“I’m delighted to be back in an entrepreneurial environment with MBT. I believe that the spill control and sorbent market is always evolving: new players, products and people. My philosophy is equal to that of the MBT way of doing business…. to always listen to my customers and understand their business to help them develop strategies to support efforts to win in the field and grow their business.”
