Robert Scott: fully committed

Michael Leithinger

Robert Scott is one of the “heroes” of the new voestalpine brand campaign. He is also the Managing Director of the voestalpine Tubular Corporation in Houston, Texas.

Robert Scott: mit ganzem EinsatzRobert Scott was born in 1956 in a small town in Texas, where he spent a happy childhood and youth. He attended university and after earning his bachelor of science degree, he moved to Houston. In 1983 he joined voestalpine Tubular Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of voestalpine Tubulars GmbH & Co KG, as a field service technician He gradually worked his way up the ladder to become Manager Technical Services, Vice President and then President (Managing Director)


Passion and patience

Today Robert Scott is the Managing Director of the voestalpine Tubular Corporation. His job is selling seamless Oil Country Tubular Goods from voestalpine Tubulars in North America, which calls for a lot of passion for the product and the business. And sometimes a healthy dose of patience, as competition is fierce in the market for Oil Country Tubular Goods. In fact, he regularly gives his patience a workout by fishing in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Texas.


Good partnership

Also on board (at work, not on the fishing trips) is his dedicated team of six.

"The cooperation works perfectly – that’s the basis of our success in the market."

Contact with the parent company in Austria is also marked by mutual respect and trust.
