About Scott Mitchell
Scott has played a key leadership role in innovative technology and Internet based businesses for over a decade. Most recently, Scott founded and served as the President and CEO of Affluence Corporation, a publicly traded international online media company focused on the Affluent and ultra luxury market segment.
Prior to founding Affluence Corp., Scott was most recently the President, CEO, and Director of Inuvo, Inc. (NYSE:INUV) an international leader in online advertising where he funded and completed more than a dozen acquisitions and integrated them into a comprehensive online advertising and marketing services company.
Scott began his career as a technology consultant for Arthur Andersen, LLP where he helped guide Fortune 100 companies through the Internet and technology boom of the 1990’s. Scott went on from Arthur Andersen to Tunes.com, where he launched RollingStone.com, TheSource.com, and DownBeatJazz.com developing Tunes.com to become the Internet’s leading music destination network. After Tunes.com’s sale in 1999 to publicly traded EMusic.com for $180 million, Scott began working with Barry Diller’s Interactive Corporation and launched HSN.com, the online presence for Home Shopping Network. In less than two years, HSN.com grew from nothing into one of Interactive’s fastest growing and most profitable web properties.
In 2002, Scott focused his attention on building his own online business which he merged with CGI Holding Corporation in August of 2004. From August of 2004 until May 2005 Scott helped raise $97 Million in debt and equity and closed 15 acquisitions to create what is now Inuvo, Inc. (NYSE:INUV). Scott served as President, Chief Executive Officer, and Director of Think Partnership until he resigned in May of 2008 to start Affluence Corporation where he is currently the President and Chief Executive Officer and is focused on the development and implementation of technologies and principles aimed at aggregating the largest multimedia platform networking wealthy and affluent people around the world.
