Founding Principal & CEO
Scott Taylor is a veteran of the finance industry and a Founding Principal at Artes Capital. After earning his degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in Business Administration and Finance (minor in Economics), he began his career in the banking industry. After spending eleven years at Wells Fargo managing a complex real estate loan portfolio, Scott served as Managing Director of Partners Capital Solutions, a private portfolio lender with over $250 million in private portfolio funds under management.
Scott is passionate about creating value for his clients through structuring capital and developing credit plans to suit the characteristics of specific real estate projects. “I am not an artist when it comes to drawing or painting,” he says, “but I believe I am very artistic when it comes to capital solutions.” Scott knows that no two pieces of real estate are the same. He is skilled at solving problems and managing risk for Artes Capital clients and investors.
Outside of work, Scott enjoys spending quality time with his wife and two daughters. He is a huge baseball fan and loves being outdoors, especially hiking and camping.
