BIO: By Invitation Only — Scott Carringer — Atlanta, GA

Published on June 22, 2015

CarringerScott Carringer began his career at Henry Schein Dental in 1997 as a Field Sales Consultant and spent time as a Business Development Specialist before accepting the position of Regional Manager in the Atlanta, Georgia Center.  In addition to building a solid foundation of service within his territory, Scott’s achievements also include the Henry Schein Total Solution Provider Award, Top Ten Sales Category, Relationship Value Added Services Award and 2013 Straine Project HOPE award. Prior to joining Henry Schein, Scott attended East Tennessee State University and graduated in 1987 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Marketing.

Scott quickly learned the winning combination of hard work and building long-term business relationships based on trust and delivering measurable results to his customers, key factors in becoming such an early success in his territory.  Scott says, “I’ve been in the dental industry for many years and I’m proud to say that I’m still doing business with the same customers I started with as a Field Sales Consultant.  We’ve become like family over the years.”

Even though Scott misses the frequent interaction with customers in the field, he appreciates the opportunity to grow his leadership skills as a manager, “I want to be known as a leader that delivers growth in our market working with our clients and FSC’s developing and promoting our Business Solutions.”  If Scott could emulate one leader, it would be President Ronald Regan, “He was able to bring a country together after facing many challenges.  I want to be known as a leader who brings people together.”

Before his career at Henry Schein, Scott enjoyed a carefree childhood filled with sporting events with his father and family vacations and appreciates his parents for teaching him the importance of kindness, hard work and determination.  Scott encourages his four children to acquire these same qualities, “When I do have free time, I enjoy spending time with my fiancée Kelly and my four children. I have two sons and two daughters, Nick, Mackenzi, Jude and London.  We enjoy outdoor activities like biking, hiking and water sports.”

Scott is grateful to be surrounded by a loving family and supportive business partners, “I’ve worked with Straine for years and have had the good fortune of referring many of my customers to Straine.  I have seen their practices become more productive and profitable, which has a profound effect on decreasing stress and increasing satisfaction.  I thank Kerry Straine for the invaluable coaching I’ve received from him and the quality of services his organization delivers on a consistent basis.  There are so many people that believed in me and gave me a chance to learn and grow.  I’m very fortunate to have worked with many people across the South.  Every single one of them has a wide range of talents and if it weren’t for them, I would not be where I am today.”
