Entrepreneur Route to CFO
Ep. 3

Chad and Scott talk about Scott’s upbringing in a military family and his meteoric rise to the CFO of a publicly traded company. Scott grew up in upstate New York, received his Finance degree from Syracuse, and went to work as an investment banker. After a few years he knew he wanted more out of his career. He decided to move clear across the country to the West coast for B-school. This set off a series of career moves with smaller start-ups that quickly got him into the executive suite.

Scott goes into detail on unconventional moves he made that allowed him to quickly move into the executive suite and eventually hold the title of CFO for a publicly traded company. Anyone who has their eyes on the upper levels of financial management should tune in to hear this incredible journey.

OpenTech Alliance is a 20 year old provider of hardware and services focused on the self-storage industry primarily in the United States.



Scott Brogi
started his career with a decade in corporate and investment banking with Chase on the east coast for 6 years, before coming west to earn an MBA in Entrepreneurial Finance from UCLA Anderson and then working for Houlihan Lokey in Los Angeles.

For the next 25 years he helped lead public and private ecommerce, education, healthcare and transportation companies through aggressive growth cycles and capital raises in southern California, concluding that time as CFO of NASDAQ-traded HyreCar Inc. where he instilled the financial discipline required to raise $40M in capital and increase market capitalization 10x in less than 3 years.

Scott recently joined OpenTech Alliance in Phoenix as CFO where he is helping build value again by focusing on recurring revenue growth and profitability.
