About Kevin

Kevin Paul Scott has traveled to six continents and spoken to leaders from more than 100 countries. Kevin co-founded ADDO in 2011 with a goal to inspire people today to impact tomorrow.

Prior to founding ADDO, Kevin’s background included non-profit charitable work, business ventures, and politics. After graduating from the University of Georgia, Kevin served on a presidential campaign team and then worked as a representative for a United States Congressman.

In consecutive years, Kevin was named to the “40 under 40” lists for Georgia Trend and then the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Kevin is the author of two books, with a third coming in 2018.

For his leadership and business acumen, Kevin has been featured on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and in numerous publications, including The New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times.

For fun, Kevin has been cage diving with Great White Sharks in South Africa, trekked Mountain Gorillas in Uganda, and ridden a llama in Colombia. However, he most enjoys being at home to cheer on the Atlanta Braves and Georgia Bulldogs. Kevin was raised in Kennesaw, Georgia, and is active in his local church. Known for his grassroots appeal and southern charm, Kevin speaks extensively at businesses, universities, and within the faith community.

I have known Kevin for nearly a decade, traveled with him to Africa, Europe, and Cuba, and listened to him speak to leaders at all levels. I admire Kevin, appreciate his friendship and am proud of his refreshing perspective on life and leadership.
