SCOTT VERNER

CEO, TRIVIDIA HEALTH, FORT LAUDERDALE

Trividia Health manufactures diabetes-related products and services. It is composed of a diagnostics business for both humans and pets and a consumer products business that produces unique supplements and topical products. Many company products are targeted to prevent or manage low blood sugar. Trividia employs more than 500, including many with advanced degrees in science, engineering and the development of robotics and lasers. Verner has been in a leadership role for 14 years.

EDUCATION University of Tampa (BA)
PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION Verner began his career in health care with Novartis. He says the “turning point has been leading many mergers, acquisitions and disposition of assets. I have led companies in the private, public, private equity and global markets. Four of my companies have been foreign-owned, which has allowed me to have a unique understanding of other cultures’ business practices.”
CIVIC EFFORT Our company has been among the largest donors for first responders, through the Broward Sheriffs Advisory Council. Trividia also donates to the American Red Cross products essential in disaster situations.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I have a very wide range of tastes in music, and I love learning the history behind wine, scotch and whiskey. I call this the liquid arts.
NEW HOBBY I know it sounds funny, but because I live in Florida and I’m bald, I collect hats. They range from cowboy, pork pie to classic for work. It’s fun and allows me to embrace getting older!
