Executive Team

Scott Bell

Scott Bell

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Scott Bell came from an entrepreneurial family.  When he first experienced the Entrepreneurship Program at Auburn University his junior year, he realized starting a company was in his future.  Scott started Bell Media immediately after graduating college, as it was the basis of his business planning project during his senior year in school.  

Bell Media got its start as an outdoor billboard company, both digital and traditional signs.  Over a 5 year period, the company grew to multiple markets and offered hundreds of billboard faces across its footprint. Bell Media sold the billboard division of the business in 2015 to Link Media, a publicly traded company.  After the sale, the company immediately turned its attention to building an online advertising business, as many of its billboard clients were showing an interest in marketing their businesses online.

Having limited knowledge at the time of the digital advertising space, Scott went to work hiring experts in the field, including several team members with many years of experience at major digital media outlets.  Scott approaches each day as an opportunity to make progress towards doing something meaningful in the digital marketing space and driving consistent improvement throughout the company. 

Scott and his wife Tiffany have twin children, Ruby and Clark, and spend the free time they have chasing toddlers and watching lots of cartoons.  He sits on the Advisory board for the Entrepreneurship Program at Auburn University and also sits on the Marketing Board for the Greater Montgomery of YMCA, one of the largest in the country.  In addition, having been touched personally with a cystic fibrosis diagnosis, his proudest moment is to have personally raised $42,000 in 2016 for the Cystic Fibrosis foundation by running 1,000 miles in one year and getting people to pledge money against his miles.
