Scott Simon

Principal Coach & Consultant

Scott spent nearly 20 years working with companies of all sizes to overcome a variety of complex challenges. His successes – as an engineer designing infrastructure, as a legal counselor, and as a corporate leader realigning businesses and workforces – equip him well as a coach-consultant to facilitate winning outcomes for clients.  

Prior to becoming a certified Executive Coach and founding the Simon Leadership Group, Scott managed corporate communications and executed special initiatives during Hawaiian Telcom’s remarkable business turnaround.  A primary focus of Scott’s efforts was to advise management on employee change initiatives and corporate culture development.

He was previously an attorney with Hawaiian Telcom, Hawaiian Electric Co. and one of Hawaii’s elite law firms; prior to that was a licensed design engineer with an international consulting engineering mega-firm.  

Highly community-minded, Scott leads the Board of Hawaii Literacy, is volunteer Executive Director of the Downtown Athletic Club Hawaii, and serves on the State Bd. of Bar Examiners.  He was a Pacific Century Fellow (Class of 2004), named to Hawaii Business Magazine’s inaugural “25 People for the Next 25 Years” (2007) and Pacific Business News’ Forty Under 40 (2010).
