Scott Sokolowski

Scott

While interviewing a young candidate, Scott Sokolowski asked a simple question, “Why aren’t you wearing a suit today?” The candidate replied, “I can’t afford one.” Inspired by this individual, Scott decided to invest in an organization that would be dedicated to helping people find professional business attire to help them prepare for job interviews. As a result, he established the nonprofit organization Save-A-Suit Foundation in 2010.

Scott has been in the business of acquiring talent for over 15 years and truly understands the importance of making a good first impression. He has won several awards over the course of his career including the 2012 Fairfield County Business Journal’s “40 Under 40″ award for his outstanding efforts in serving the community through Save-A-Suit.

Scott also has a family history of serving in the United States military. His father and grandfather served in the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard respectively, while he served in the U.S. Air Force for 6 years. Scott is passionate about helping our honorable veterans make a smooth transfer to a civilian career with the Save-A-Suit “Soldiers to Civilians” program.
